Oldest Crew?

It did not take long for someone to rise to the challenge of suggesting the oldest crew to have been out in a St Ayles skiff.  The four rowers enjoying a gentle Saturday afternoon paddle in this pic are from South Queensferry.  Without counting the cox (who is half the age of the next youngest crew member) the total age of this crew of four lads is 270.  Can anyone beat that?  I think it must be the salt water that keeps them all feeling young.

    The Langstone Cutters crew that won the over-60s cup at the Great River Race last year (and fastest Clayton skiff) had a total age of about 250, but our cox was the oldest in the boat so that would take our total age over…
