Who fancies a row in company in the Borders? Eyemouth rowers are going to be escorting the Herring Queen into Eyemouth harbour for this year’s Gala Day on Saturday 7th July. The local rowers would love to have other skiffs along for the company, to make the occasion look spectacular and to promote Coastal Rowing. The rowers plan to have a barbecue once the boats are off the water. This should be a great day out and gives visiting skiffies the chance to explore somewhere new in company, without the added pressure of competition. The Herring Queen used to be escorted by very many fishing boats, but this spectical has declined a bit as the fleet has reduced. The local skiffies would love help from their coastal companions to bring the procession back up to its former glory.
Clubs can either launch boats from St Abbs and come all the way down to Eyemouth, or go out from Eyemouth and meet the incoming queen and her flotilla. Sea conditions may dictate which plan is best. Expressions of interest to Alison Davidson please on firstname.lastname@example.org or

If you missed the Golden Jubilee Pageant here is your chance to salute a young and smiley queen from your skiff, and much nearer to home too.
