The U14 quad of James Stevenson, Peter Smith, Alasdair Watson, Laurence Bialy (all S2) and cox Louise Henderson (S5) won the U14 quad event and was the fastest quad in the division.  The Junior four of Callum Stephen and Euan Marshall (both S6) and Ian Walker and Alex Frew (both S5) rowed in Sen R2 event, won their event and were the fastest four of the division.  Sophie Ward and Isla Ferguson (both S2) won the U15 girls quad event, as part of a composite crew with Glasgow Rowing Club . 

In the second division, the U15 quad – Hamish Duncan and Jack Dryden (both S3), James Stevenson and Laurence Bialy (both S2) and Louise Henderson (S5) – won their event, finishing very high up in the overall results. Watson's also entered a number of U14 girls quads, which performed very well but without opposition from other clubs.

In total the event resulted in some very good performances which all show strength and depth at the lower age ranges in the club.
