Thanks to Chris Perkins for these great photos from Portsoy. It is very encouraging to welcome new communities such as Helmsdale, Pittenweem and Gosforth to the Festival skiff races. Conditions were challenging and the decision had to be made on the Sunday not to continue with the regatta. The success of Coigach, with a popultation of around 300, shows what a smaller community can do by getting involved with Scottish Coastal Rowing. A big thank you to Topher Dawson and his team for stepping up to organise the races, and to the Festival for inviting us back. More photos on the Scottish Rowing Flikr page (link to right of page).
