Treble Golds for Inverness Rowing Club

posted by Roy Sinclair - 13 May 2012, 7:16 p.m.

By again winning the men's veteran D coxless pairs event at the Clydesdale ARC regatta on the River Clyde in Glasgow last Saturday, Inverness Rowing Club members John Sharkey and Dave Rothwell achieved a remarkable treble of wins in the event having won this event at regattas in Aberdeen and Strathclyde Park over the previous two weekends. In a closely fought final, they overcame the challenge of a determined crew from Glasgow RC to win their golds by just under two lengths.

Both athletes also took part in separate single sculling events, Sharkey recording a solid two length win over fellow Inverness member Alastair Duff in the men's veteran D/E event whilst Rothwell challenged well in his veteran novice C/D event but just missed out on a win.

Alastair Duff also took part in the men's R2 single sculling event but despite having an early lead over the first part of the 1500 metre course was eventually overtaken by his opponent from Clyde ARC. Roy Sinclair took part in the men's veteran F/G single sculls event, but narrowly lost out to his opponent from Glasgow RC.
