Winter Sprints: Ullapool


In breezy but dry weather, on Saturday 10th November Ullapool CRC hosted a Winter Sprint session at the wee pier. Coigach, Loch Carron and Lochinver joined both UCRC skiffs in 250m dashes out of the harbour towards the wee pier. After a warming lunch of soup, sandwiches and cakes, there were longer sprints out to buoys and back, ending with a Le Mans style beach start for a round the moorings race. This was hotly contested with a very narrow finish between Coigach and Ullapool, the latter narrowly leading.

There was a strong youth showing, with both Ullapool skiffs fielding youth crews with a very ecumenical mix of Ullapool and Coigach.
Although the event started with a points score this was abandoned in favour of hot soup and standing round the brazier. Last year’s most promising club award went to Lochcarron, who handed it over to this year’s holder, Lochinver.
