A squad from Huntingdon Boat Club enjoyed a good trip to the Nottingham Regatta - with a number of victories.

In total six of the Hartford Road-based rowing club's junior crews headed to the National Watersports Centre at Holme Pierrepoint where they raced over a distance of 1000m on a six-lane course.

For some it was the first time racing on an Olympic-style multi-lane course and yet despite all of that there were two superb first places.

Ross O’Kane got his nose in front to win the J15 single sculls event while Daniel Grant took top prize in the J13 singles.

Evie Ray narrowly missed out on a win when she came second in the women's J14 single before she doubled up with Isabella Dovey to place third n the doubles.
