World Rowing Masters Regatta 2011 - Poznan, Poland

posted by Roy Sinclair - 31 Aug 2011, 12:14 p.m.

Masters oarsmen and oarswomen from many clubs throughout the length and breadth of Scotland will be taking part in this year's annual World Rowing Masters Regatta being held on the international rowing course in Poznan. Included in the Scottish Masters Team will be a group of ten men and women athletes from Inverness Rowing Club who will be competing in a variety of rowing and sculling events.

Leading the journey to Poland will be the advance party of the Scottish Masters Team with the fully loaded boat trailer which leaves Scotland this Sunday with invaluable support from the ferry group DFDS Seaways on it's crossing from Newcastle to Holland prior to the long overland drive to Poznan to arrive at the regatta venue on Tuesday. John Crummie, passenger director for DFDS Seaways adds: "We wish the team the best of luck at the Regatta. We were delighted to help transport their boats safely to Poland onboard our ship from Newcastle to Holland and we look forward to hearing how the team performs at the event."

Included in the Scottish Masters Team are a significant number of previously successful medallists from Scotland ranging in age from late twenties to early seventies who have been training long and hard over the past few months and hopes are high for significant medal success at this highly popular and well attended regatta. A huge entry of athletes from clubs throughout the world will also be involved in racing which starts on Thursday 8th September and concludes with a range of mixed events on the following Sunday.
