The women’s 1st VIII will feature GB U23 women’s eight rower Alexandra Rankin. Alex, who studies History of Art at the University of Edinburgh, was brought up in Glasgow and is looking forward to returning to her home town to seal victory on the Clyde

“I’m delighted to be part of the Scottish Boat Race crew again this year. It’s always a competitive race and one that means a lot to me having grown up in Glasgow.”

Junior European Gold Medallist Jake Offiler takes seat 5 in the men’s 1st VIII. Currently studying for an MA in Social Anthropology Jake comes from a strong skulling background but has shown his versatility and adaptability by being a key crew member in the men’s sweep squad this season.

“It’s a great feeling to be part of my first Scottish Boat Race and to compete in something that has so much history. The whole Club are looking forward to a thrilling afternoon of racing.”
