The weather conditions were challenging on morale rather than on muscles. The racing was from Hawes Pier, round one of the supports for the Road Bridge, and back to the Hawes pier. The iconic rail bridge did of course make a fantastic backdrop to the event.
A report and results will be posted here soon (I hope). If anyone could send me three or four good photos of the racing I would be grateful.
It was great to see some new clubs turning out for the event. Troon Coastal Rowing Club (in photos below) greatly enjoyed their first experience of a regatta.
