Roy Adam

Mercantile Rowing Club (VIC)

1906 - VRA Regatta, Men's Scull - Second1

1906 - Victorian Championships, Men's Scull - Second2

1906 - Royal Henley Regatta, Diamond Sculls, eliminated in the second round2

1907 - Victorian Championships, Men's Scull - Second2

Roy sculled at a time when the dominant Victorian sculler was fellow Mercantile member Percy Ivens. In 1907 when Roy competed, Percy won his sixth consecutive sculling Championship. He was consigned to second place in both his Championships starts.

The 1908 Mercantile annual report records that he was lost to competition through his departure to live in the country. The Club wished him well for future success.
