#Rowing: Commercial Regatta was the biggest ever run by the club, with a huge entry from juniors in particular. Some of the top results also went the way of the host club. Trinity had to give way in the men’s intermediate eight, though in the women’s club eight they reversed the order. Scott Addison of Trinity won the men’s club single.
