Ist ‘Coigach Lass’ win!
To massive cheers from our supporters- and the crowds- lining the harbour walls at the very busy Portsoy Traditional Boat Festival on Saturday, the Lass’s Open Men’s team for the day battled a headwind on the return leg of the race to storm home in the finals as the triumphant Men’s Open St Ayles Skiff crew.
A fantastic achievement of pure determination, tenacity and stubborn willpower against crews drawn from much larger communities! Every single race our rowers entered, men’s women’s mixed and junior, they gave their all despite blisters and pulled muscles! They were all winners.
What a weekend – with all our rowers and their kids, spouses, partners, friends …and dogs…. having a brilliant couple of days. Photos pouring in and I have been promised footage of the winning final. Come back soon when I have caught breath to blog it all up! See Topher’s (of the ‘Ulla’) comment on the right.
