Success for Inverness at Henley Royal Regatta

posted by Roy Sinclair - 3 Jul 2012, 8:43 a.m.

Gold for Alan Sinclair in the Double Sculls Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta in the finals on Sunday 1st July. In company with his fellow Leander clubmate John Collins, Alan stroked their boat to an emphatic win in the final by four and a quarter lengths ahead of the Norwegian double from Oslo. Their semi final on Saturday saw a comfortable win against another Oslo crew which was preceeded on Friday by a fine win in wet and windy conditions in their quarter final against a double from the Nereus/Groningen university club from Holland.

Imogen Walsh raced in her single scull on Friday in the Princess Royal Challenge Cup against K Pajusalu representing the R.C. Kalev from Estonia but despite sculling well in the difficult headwind conditions was unable to get the better of her much heavier opponent who ultimately met her match by the winner from Canada in the final of this event on Sunday.
