..and here’s the proof!

August 7, 2010

In the pic above there’s (l to r in the boat ) Alan, Nick, Mark and Dan (with breath enough after the race for a victory whoop!) and Di in the cox’s seat- having just won the final of the Open Men’s race…

The women’s crews and mixed all made it to the finals -every one ; a fantastic effort…Here’s the over 40 Women getting their breath back: bow to stern, Ish, Alison, Sue and Di with Mark coxing. Looks like Trigger wants on board too.

Our lovely, battling ‘Coigach Lass’ went down the long road to Portobello crewed by, variously, Nick, Dan, Mark,Alan, Grethe, Ish, Sue, Alison and Di and ably coxed by Mark and Di .

Just a small pool of rowers you see- but every single one determined to have fun whilst giving all the other boats a good run for their money. Yours truly sadly unable to be there; busy disporting myself around the island of Eigg.

So perhaps it was the breakfast black pudding…..Hmmm. Thinks.  “Should we be seeking sponsorship from Cockburns, Black Pudding makers…..”  Whatever, the Coigach crews had great craic.

L to R Coigach Lass Men’s Open Crew: Dan Walton, Di Wilding (Cox) Alan Pendred, Nic Clooney, Mark Irvine  all insanely, but rightly, proud of their lovely hand-crafted medals.

Fab time was had by all and, frankly, though I could eat my hat I’m so jealous of those who were able to go, respect has to go to Andres Leslie and the rest of the Porty lot and all the others who organised the whole day so well and made the whole regatta so much fun. Cheers y’all. See you up in the ‘Buie some time soon! Thanks to Jill Clooney for photos. Happy Birthday Jill !x
