What follows are photos and videos of a super day had in Galloway on August 11 2018 . The sun shone and Alnmouth won the coastal rower category of the 14 mile race from Carsethorn to Dumfries down the River Nith.

 

 

Warming up at the start at Carsethorn – beautiful place

 

 

Friendly rowers from Annan . We agreed with them not to to do a “le-mans” style start with a footrace to the boats!

Presentation

 

We keep the trophy for a year and will need to add the name of Alnmouth to it . The whisky wont last that long.

 

 

 

 

 

Medals of the salty coo were also given out.
