On Saturday 24th September, Inverness Rowing Club's own closed single sculling event was raced for the Allan Garraway Single Sculling Trophy over the 500 metre sprint course close to the club's boathouse on the Caledonian Canal. A group of 5 athletes, two women and three men, took part in this popular event in difficult tailwind conditions following time trials which took place before the knockout stages to determine equalising handicaps for the less experienced competitors.

Those athletes who fought their way through to semi-final positions were in the first semi - final, John Sharkey and Sally Moore, whilst Mary Clouston and Paddy Walsh met in the second semi - final.

Progressing by the narrowest of margins, Moore and Walsh squeezed through to the final, which was won by the margin of just under 12 seconds by Sally Moore from Paddy Walsh. The impressive Allan Garraway Trophy was presented to the winner by club president Paddy Walsh.

Some pictures of the event have now been posted in the gallery.:D
