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!

Alnmouth crosses the finish line, depositing its cargo of tobacco for the grateful burghers of Dumfries. The Salty Coo looks on and the piper plays.

The crew recover after the race and head for the quay.


POA is winched out of the water – John can’t resist anything engineering


We are on the leaderboard!




We keep the trophy for a year and will need to add the name of Alnmouth to it. The whisky won’t last that long.




Medals of the salty coo were also given out.

The lakes weekend – July 2018



This is lunchtime Saturday on Lake Windermere. The day consisted of rowing from Newby Bridge to Ambleside. After lunch we also did some time trials around the island in the background.
