A public meeting has been called at the Fisheries Museum for 2.30pm on Sat 20 Mar to form a Rowing Club as part of the Museum. The prototype will be there for anyone interested to have a try – even if you are not from Anster.
As there are already two Ladies teams and one mens, it seems like there will be quite a lot of interest.
If there is any other interest from around the East Neuk, please come along – you may find more people from your village there to get your own club going!
It has been a busy week for taking orders – Cumbrae, Dunbar, and Eyemouth are now added to the list.
The Cumbrae boat has been ordered by the National Watersports Centre on Cumbrae with the intention of having it ready for the Waterports festival 14/15 August.
There will be more info on that soon from Galgael who are organising.
A meeting has been held in Eyemouth to bring together potential builders and rowers: http://www.berwickshire-news.co.uk/news/Age-old-rowing-tradition-could.6119666.jp
