Row Lochboisdale Results 2018


The first major rowing regatta in the Western Isles was really good. We had skiffs from N Uist, Berneray, Bragar, Barra, Siabost, Lochinver, Ullapool and Brora. Friday night had NE winds of 30 mph which kept the boats off the water and made for some memorable camping. Saturday was much more reasonable and gorgeously sunny. The races started outside the marina breakwater, round a 1.7km triangle and finished within the marina which was exciting for spectators. Lochinver won their first trophies and close racing was had all through the fleet but it was Golspie’s large and fit team of 28 people which prevailed in the end. Ullapool came second and Siabost came third. The hospitality was amazing and really well organised. The marina was a great place for crews to change over and for spectators to enjoy the racing, and the showers are lovely! Well done to Cheryl and Robert Taylor for bringing together the whole community to a relaxed, fun event in a stunning location.
