Orkney rower Sean Corrigall gets custom-built boat


A promising young rower from Orkney has received a custom-built boat after fund-raising by the local community.

Sean Corrigall was talent spotted three years ago by Sir Steve Redgrave, but had struggled to find a boat big enough to carry him as he is 6ft 10 in tall.

His new craft was unveiled in Kirkwall at the weekend.
