Congratulations to Katherine Grainger for being made a Dame of the British Empire in the New Year’s honours list. With four silvers and a gold at five different Olympics she has more Olympic medals than any other British woman, and has won six slide seat world championship golds too. To have sustained that level of performance over 20 years of representing her country is quite remarkable. Fundamentally though she is a lovely person and of course is a quine who has showed interest in Portsoy’s skiffs. So we like her a lot. Here are a couple of photos from the year that she opened the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival and had a go in St Ayles skiffs.
