DURSLEY rower Tim Barnett will be racing in the prestigious Henley Royal Regatta with the Gloucester rowing club next Wednesday.

Barnett, 26, is part of the coxless four that race in the senior two category, and the crew have already qualified for the international event after a hugely successful season.

On Sunday they won the Marlow International Regatta at Windsor against the some of the best rowing clubs in the UK and Ireland, including London rowing club, Upper Thames, and Cork.

They have also won the Metopolitan Regatta recently.
