The Munich International Junior Regatta took place on 7-8 May and four Scots were selected as part of a 30-strong group of athletes representing the GB Rowing Team.

All three Scottish athletes in the junior women’s sweep group came home with two gold medals from the event.

On Saturday, the junior women’s pair featuring Zoe (ASRA) and the junior women’s four which included Maisie (ASRA) and Amy (George Heriot’s School) both won gold medals in exciting finals. All three then combined as part of the four on Sunday to claim their second gold of the weekend.

GB Start athlete Josh, representing Strathclyde Park Rowing Club, raced in the junior men’s double scull on Saturday and the quad scull on Sunday achieving a 12th and 9th place respectively in a competitive field.

Munich had been the first taste of international competition for the GB Rowing Team Under 19 group since 2019 and these performances bode well as we move towards the final crew formation trials in July which will determine the crews for the World Rowing Under 19 Championships (Varese, 27-31 July) and the Coupe de la Jeunesse (Castrelo de Mino, 5-7 August).
