posted by Roy Sinclair - 8 Aug 2011, 12:44 p.m.

Inverness Rowing Club is holding the HAWCO SPRINT REGATTA on Saturday the 13th August. This year's event is again being supported by Hawco VW Inverness.

The event is being held on the Caledonian Canal over a 500 metre course close to the Boathouse. The event is very popular and this year has attracted many crews from the central belt, Dumfries and Bradford as well as from the home club. Also taking part will be a large contingent of members from the Royal Chester Rowing Club and Grosvenor Rowing Club who are due to complete their two day 65 mile Charity Row from Fort William to arrive in Inverness on Friday afternoon - see note below for further information.

A full race programme of 70 races, which includes junior, senior and veteran events, is due to start at 10.30 am and be completed shortly after 4.00pm.

Spectators are welcome to come and witness the tremendous spectacle of top Scottish crews racing on a length of water which is acknowledged by many as the best in Scotland for rowing. The Boathouse is located two hundred metres beyond the Jacobite Cruises Office on the Torvean golf course side of the canal.
