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.

Their women's coxed four of Isobel Hopkins, Louise Hinkley, Tawney Evans, Evie Andrew and cox Alice Ray lost their novice status after winning on the Cam to follow up a previous success at the Ironbridge Regatta in Shropshire earlier this summer.

And three Huntingdon junior talents collected their first-ever race wins last weekend.

Alex Hunter shone in the J13 single sculls, while Joe Brice and Daniel Fazackerley teamed up to great effect in the J13 double sculls.
