Home International Regatta
The Home International Regatta (HIR) is an annual challenge match between Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. The Scotland Team, which actually comprises four separate teams (Senior Men, Senior Women, Junior Men and Junior Women) is selected annually and compromises approximately 70 athletes and 15 coaches and support staff. The HIR provides an opportunity for Scottish Rowers to gain their first taste of international competition. 2012 Olympic Gold Medallist, Katherine Grainger and 2011 World Champion Imogen Walsh are both veterans of the regatta as is Sir Chris Hoy before making his switch to cycling.
In bringing the most talented athletes and coaches in Scotland together on a regular basis, Scottish Rowing promotes collaboration between clubs and athletes while nurturing a culture of healthy competition, thus ensuring that the Scotland Rowing Teams can be as successful as possible.
Over the past two years the Scotland Senior Teams have experienced a period of success, winning the 3 of the 4 Senior Team Competitions. The Scottish Rowing High Performance Group (HPG) is striving for this level of performance to be replicated at the Junior Level.
The 2017 HIR will be held at the National Watersports Centre, Nottingham on 29th July, 2017.
