Michael May, former President of HWUBC raced for the Senior Men in the 4+ and 8+, coming a close second to the welsh team on both occasions. Michael learnt to row as a complete novice with us and is now finally free to go live the rest of his life away from the club as he moves to Switzerland for work. Michael gained selection for the team after finishing 3rd in open pairs at the Scottish Championships in June alongside Joe Nelson. Joe missed out on the regatta after initially being selected in the 4+ and 8+ alongside Michael but had to withdraw due to injury.
Sam Abernethy competed in the Junior Men's Team for the 3rd year in a row in the 2- and 8+, finishing 4th to a strong field on both occasions. Sam came to us from Glasgow Academy at the start of this season and we look forward to seeing what results he can produce over the next three years.
As always, our head coach Graeme Cunningham represented the team in his role as Team Manager and guided the Senior Women to an overall win.
