Last Saturday saw England host the 2017 Home International Regatta at Strathclyde Park. This event was well attended but saw some rough conditions. We had one of our University members selected for the squad, Calum Young who was representing the country in the Coxed Four and Eights events.

His team did well finishing in 3rd place in both events in a strongly contested field with England and Ireland struggling to decide who was fastest. England won the four and Ireland won the eight.

England won the Mens and both Junior team competitions with Scotland securing the Women’s team medal for the second year in a row. Points totals were very close in both the senior team events with England being more dominant in the Junior events.

Congratulations to Calum on his selection for the Scotland squad and best of luck for following that up with another selection next year.
