The ‘Lass’ races!
With Hamish having kindly topped up the power steering fluid and changed a dodgy tyre for us ahead of departure on Friday 28th, the community minibus set off at 3pm for Anstruther in Fife with half the rowing team members, (Alison with Finlay and Seumas, Nick with Stan and Gregor and me) – plus all our camping gear, the Lass’s lifejackets and enough sweeties to choke a stott!
Ron D in his car towing the ‘Lass’ had gone on ahead followed by Phil and Di, Louise and Catriona and Ken W in their cars; leaving as work allowed.
And what a weekend we all had! How did we do? Well, we didn’t win but the ‘Lass’ certainly did Coigach, her rowers and her builders proud! For the details of our three races watch this space but meanwhile here’s a shot of our Over 40s Women’s crew, bow to stern, Sue, me, Alison, Louise and Di (Cox) getting into position at the starting line for the Coigach Lass’s first ever race.
