Eyemouth Launch


The Eyemouth community rowing Project Launched their first boat officialy on Sunday 11 July.  Immediately after the offficial launch she was rowed around to Eyemouth Beach by what I think was the heaviest and powerful crew I have seen in a St Ayles.  When those young men get practiced, any other men’s open crew had better watch out!

On the start line on a very breezy day

Radio Scotland sent a reporter to cover the event, and the piece on the rowing can be found at BBC iPlayer at 38:00 or thereabouts.

Unity of Eyemouth

As can be seen in the photo, it was a very breezy, and conditions were very testing for the crews, especially the new ones.
Everyone appeared to enjoy themselves, especially the Dunbar mens crew who had never rowed a St Ayles before, won their heat, and came pretty close to winning the event – we blame the cox – equally inexperienced.
