A very wet Lough Rinn in Ireland played host to the 2023 Home Internationals, where Cambridge’s Gemma King led England to be the first nation to retain the Senior Men’s and Women’s trophies, along with the Junior Men’s and Women’s.

Gemma led from the front with a comprehensive victory in the Lightweight Women’s Single, then returned later in the day to drive the winning Women’s Quad along with the members of the Women’s Double Scull and Openweight Single Scull.
