In variable weather conditions last weekend at the Metropolitan Regatta on the 2012 Olympic regatta course at Dorney Lake, Eton, success was achieved by Inverness scullers in a variety of events.

On Saturday in hot sunny conditions with a strong crosswind, Alan Sinclair was a member of the successful Leander Club crew which stormed to a three lengths win in this Elite quadruple sculls event. Also on Saturday, his younger brother Colin, sculling in the colours of Glasgow Rowing Club, qualified well in his heat of the Intermediate 2 single sculls event to subsequently claim fourth place in the final of this event. Sean Corrigall from Orkney and now rowing with Reading University Boat Club achieved a sound third place in final of the Intermediate 3 single sculls event.

In damp, cool conditions on Sunday, Imogen Walsh, in company with her London Rowing Club crewmate Stephanie Cullen, had a fine win in the Women's Elite double sculls event, whilst Alan claimed another win in the Elite quadruple sculls event and his brother Colin secured third place in the final of his Intermediate 2 single sculls event.

Next weekend, Inverness crews will be competing in a variety of events at the Scottish Rowing Championships which take place over two days on the 2000 metre eight lane international regatta course at Strathclyde Park near Hamilton. :D
