Now we’re breaking oars…!

June 23, 2010

Skiffies of the opposition… be very afraid. Our over 40s men’s team snapped 2 – TWO – fifteen foot, heavy coble oars on their first ever training session as a team last night. Mwa-ha-ha!

So, above, you see Steve creating an x-scarphe to mend the oars. (Just made that term up. Descriptive tho’…)

There he is.  Clamps …and carpenter shorts….akimbo.

Will we have oars to practise with tomorrow night? Well, when I was down at the ‘boatshed’ making cups of tea for the worker it looked like a sweet job.

If it doesn’t work, that little oar is gonna look a little lonesome on its ownsome there in the ‘Lass’.

But hey! I have complete faith in be-shorted Steve and the power of epoxy.

Bring on Portsoy Traditional Boat Festival and the St Ayles Skiff rowing events this coming weekend!  (Google it.)

Bring on the competition!  And, er…..bring on the spare oars!

    Great weekend at Portsoy and what a blast it was to watch you guys storm to victory in the Open Mens’ final. Well done to everyone. I loved the craic in the campsite and the barbequed mackerel! See you at the Gathering.

    Cheers, Topher.
