At the GB Final Trials held last weekend at the 2012 Olympic rowing course at Dorney Lake, Inverness oarswoman Imogen Walsh produced a fine performance representing London Rowing Club in the womens lightweight single sculls, in which she won the B final 6 seconds ahead of second placed Laura Greenhalgh who represented Great Britain in the lightweight women's quad at the 2010 World Rowing Championships.

Next weekend on the eight lane international 2000 metre course near Hamilton, the annual two day Strathclyde Park regatta takes place incorporating the Scottish Universities Rowing Championships. A large entry has been received from clubs and universities throughout Scotland as well as entries from a significant number of English clubs. Inverness Rowing Club will be represented by a number of experienced athletes who are due to compete in a range of rowing and sculling events over the weekend.

The following Saturday, 30th April, the Inverness club will host an introductory 'Come & Try' event at the club's boathouse on the banks of the Caledonian Canal near Tomnahurich Bridge. A full programme of activities is planned with two introductory sessions, one starting at 10am and another at 2pm to allow interested participants to learn more about, and to sample the delights and enjoyment of the sport of rowing.

Anyone interested is encouraged to come along to take part and to email - - in advance to provide the coaching staff with an indication of numbers for planning and programming purposes. A complimentary lunchtime barbeque is also planned to sustain those attending and taking part that day. :roll:
