Lucie Aitkenhead, chairperson said “We had a fantastic week in Holland, racing against strong competition from Ireland, England, Holland, Canada, America, and many other clubs from across Scotland. 
"We had hot sunshine, and perfect rowing conditions most days, although a tornedo passed close by one day. We also went to the most amazing parties, the Dutch were terrific hosts.
"Many thanks to all the supporters who came out with us, including partners, parents, sisters, brothers, grans and grandads. 
"The cheering on the finishing line definitely helped. 
"Also many thanks to the local businesses who supported the club with our fundraising, especially McEvoy Engineering, who sponsored the kit for our youth team."
