The overall event was won by Harlaw Academy with 87 points, Bankhead came second overall with 66 points and Kincorth Academy came third with 42 points. The whole competition was a real success with all participants and teachers enjoying the afternoon. This was the first time any of the youngsters had been at the boathouse, so it was a fine chance to show them what all of their efforts on the indoor rowing machines at their schools over the last few months have been working towards. All participants are completing their swim test in the next 2 weeks and commence their 10-week Wet Start immediately after the Easter holidays. Watch this space for an update! The ASRA team would like to thank all three schools for supporting this event and also the many helpers who ensured that the afternoon ran smoothly.
