GROSVENOR Rowing Club members answered the call to represent Wales in the Home Countries International Regatta at Strathclyde Country Park.
From the senior men's squad, Iwan Jones, Tim Betteridge and Tim Goldsbrough competed in the sculling events for Wales on the 2000m multi-lane course.
Tim Betteridge fought hard in the lightweight single sculls race and narrowly missed winning, pushed into second place by the competent Irish sculler.
Jones and Goldsbrough raced in the men's double sculls event, and after a hard race, finished third behind Scotland by two seconds, with England finishing in first place. The three members then teamed up with Robin Dowell from Agecroft Rowing Club to compete in the senior quad race.
An exciting race saw the Welsh quad row through Scotland to finish behind winners England by only four seconds.
Grosvenor's Rachel Jones raced in both the women's senior coxed four and eight events over the regatta. The coxed fours result was disappointing but the Welsh put in a strong performance against crews that medalled at the National Championships the previous week.
* King's School rowers had mixed allegiances when they competed at the Home Countries match at Strathclyde.
Ming-Chee Chung coxed the England Junior men's eight to victory over the Irish.
The Welsh boat, which included King's oarsmen Max Berry and James Ecroyd, came third, a long way ahead of the fourth-placed Scottish crew.
The result helped the English Junior men to top their table ahead of Ireland and Wales, and England won the overall match in front of Scotland and Ireland.
Another King's pupil, Peter Walker, was stroke in the pairs event for Great Britain against 11 other nations in the Coupe de Jeunesse in Holland.
They led until the half way mark in the first heat but were overhauled by the Swiss.
In the final, the French led from the start, with the British crew in second place until the half way mark when they were again overtaken by the Swiss and pushed into the bronze-medal position by a 1.5-second margin.
In Sunday's racing, the British crew were third to the French and Spanish in the first heat, but came through to the silver position in the final less than half a second behind the French winners.
They finally exacted their revenge on the Swiss by beating them into third place by 3.5 seconds.
Great Britain won the overall event, topping both boys' and girls' tables. Italy was second and France third.
The World Junior Championships start this Wednesday in Amsterdam. King's two top rowers, Nick Fearnhead and Will Orchard, will be rowing together in the VIII in an event including crews from USA and New Zealand.
