Local rowers set oars at regatta

The Borders will be dually represented when the Scottish rowing team travels to Ireland this weekend for the annual Home International Regatta.

Maddie Arlett from Selkirk and Elizabeth Crighton from Earlston, have both been named in a strong women’s team to take on their English, Welsh and Irish counterparts at the National Rowing Centre in Cork on Saturday.

Both have achieved a host of national titles this season and will be looking to continue their success as they compete together in the coxed four event. Arlett will also line up in the eight, while Crighton will compete in both the double and quadruple sculls.
