On 14/15 July Tom Claxton raced in Nottingham in a coxless 4 (composite with Strathclyde Park)
in the British Rowing Championships resulted in a Silver Medal and was selected as
a member of the Scotland Junior Menís 8 and coxless 4 crews to represent Scotland at the Home Countries International Regatta in Cardiff on the 21/22 July. The
international regatta (England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland) is a demanding test of strength and team work as with no
heats or elimination rounds for each boat category the crews have only one
chance to beat their rivals so the racing is fast and furious.
|Despite their average age being younger than
their competition, Tom and his crew mates from around Scotland put in sterling
performances and whilst not gaining any medals they were by no means outclassed
with under two boat lengths spanning the finishing positions of all four
countries in both events.|
