NEWS - RECENT RACE RESULTS
Scottish Junior / Scottish Schools head at Dullatar - 1st Oct 2016
We had Lindsey, Rory, Ben, Isla and Eleanor all competing in their first head race.
Eleanor and Isla came 2nd in W Ju14 2x with a time of 15:04 only 19secs behind the winner (quite a narrow margin considering the length of the course) and only 24secs sloer than Freya Glasgow Schools WJ18 2x.
Rory and Ben in Ju 14 2x were off to a fantastic start looking like they had could have finished top in their category. However, the steering unfortunately broke and they got wedged in the bank. I believe Rory's dad even jumped in the canal to free them (Is that true ??).
Lindsey fought well in W J18 1x overtaking a couple of scullers. She finished 3rd last in her category with a time of 16:58. In her words she was pleased not to come last. J18 is a very tough category and Lindsey is now competing against people seeking places at World Junior Championship.
Clyde 3k Head everyone's first time racing on Clyde (excluding Graeme and Gregor H)
Natalie, in her first head race, coming 2nd in W R2 1x with a time of 12.04.

Rory performed very well coming 2nd in J15 1x (after getting bumped up 1 age category as he was only J14 entered) with a time of 11.25.
Natalie and Lindsey with a well-deserved win in W R 2x with a time of 11.15.
