Two local clubs enjoyed plenty of success when competing in the Cambridge Autumn Regatta last Sunday.
There were triumphs from opposite ends of the age spectrum for St Ives Rowing Club on the 600m River Cam course at Fen Ditton.
Sam Hasted and Rory Crouch continued their fine run of results by triumphing in the Junior 14 double sculls while Gary Gilbey took Masters ‘C’ single sculls honours before joining forces with Jon Dolby, Tony Bennett and Paul Ashmore for Masters ‘D’ quad sculls glory.
Other victories came from the Junior 17 double sculls duo of George Wells and Cameron Rogers, and Luke Watson in the IM1 single sculls.
It also proved to be a memorable event for Huntingdon Boat Club.
