Fox Lake Winter Festival 2016

North Berwick, Eskmuthe and Port Seton, put on their  brave faces in challenging conditons and helped each other out with lifting boats and filling in spaces in others teams too.  Teams were winners by being their, tried to keep cosy and at least, got to row.

This was pretty challenging for coxes as well, with huge gusts blowing across the lake, avoiding obstacles and the bank.   At least one oar came off second best with a ski jump.

Three categories were raced round the tight, obstacle strewn, short pursuit course.   Men, ladies and mixed. With two boats racing clockwise from separate points.  With three teams present each race was run on a round robin, racing each team one after the other, getting warmer….

A wee break for coffee then mixed races, very blowy by this stage. But all in all crews got to row and chat with rowing buddies. First overall this year were Port Seton receiving a night on Foxfalls and a lovely new trophy, North Berwick were second and Musselburgh’s Eskmuthe close behind.  Thank you to the awesome, award winning, Foxlake team for hosting and providing beer for the rowers, and to everyone for the support.
