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 -
firstname.lastname@example.org - 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:
