Hawco Inverness 4s and Small Boats Head

 

The girls opened GRC’s presence in Inverness in the Womens Restricted 2 coxed quad, storming though to a
convincing victory by nearly 40 seconds. Eidlih drove
the girls like a formula one driver steering a brilliantly efficient course
pushing the girls to their limit in a successful attempt to secure the victory.

 

Don, who was in charge of the squad all weekend, struggled
to find his form in Restricted 1 singles and finished 6th out of 11
competitors. A great attempt which bodes well for the rest of the season.

 

2 of the quad competed in singles in the second division.
Katie was feeling a bit under the weather and was ill during this race but
struggled on to come in 4th out of 7 just 4 seconds behind club mate Louise who
was 1 place higher in the Womens Novice singles.

 

Sunday saw more racing with Hannah and Becca (from the
winning 4) racing a double. Unfortunately their steering wasn’t as spectacular
as Eilidh’s and they came in a very close second by
only 3 seconds over 4500m. Louise also raced in the Womens
J16 single and managed a very admirable 4th out of 12, less than 30 seconds
behind a very strong winner.

 

Last division on the sunday
was a busy one for GRC. Don picked up his pace and came in 3rd in the Open
singles event. Katie recovered from illness and joined Ciara in a Womens Res2 double and stormed through to a great second.
They smashed our captain Steve’s time making him feel nearly as old as he is
:).

 

Becca and Hannah (from the winning quad) competed in J18
singles and stormed home to achieve 3rd and 4th respectively.
