Inchcolm Trip June 2018

Rowing for fun.

Kinghorn Coastal Rowing Club


Sport is so often just about winners and losers. But it doesn’t have to be competition for people to get huge satisfaction and enjoyment out of taking part.

That’s what over one hundred rowers and helpers from around Fife, the Forth and the Tay, found as they spent Sunday rowing their St Ayles Skiffs from Kinghorn to Inchcolm Island and back.

Kinghorn Coastal Rowing Club hosted the event for which there were no prizes, no crossing the line first, no disappointment at following the fleet, just the delight of rowing in company with ‘skiffies’ from around Fife and beyond.

Said Phil Godding, Chair of Kinghorn’s Club, “Skiff racing can be very exciting and attract huge interest. But rowers in this event told me it was good for once not to have the tension and edge of a competition. Instead it was just great to relax and enjoy being out on the water off the beautiful Fife coast in company with other rowers and clubs.”

Twelve boats took to the water in Kinghorn Bay from nine clubs from Fisherrow, Portobello, Newhaven, South Queensferry, Kinghorn, Pittenweem, Anstruther, St Andrews and Wormit.

Kinghorn and Burntisland Sailing Clubs joined in and provided support boats, whilst local business Calypso Marine ferried rowers out to Inchcolm from Aberdour and back so as many people as possible could have their turn in rowing these community built boats.
