The first day of spring. Bright sunshine and balmy seas. Can this be Britain?
Lots of people turned up to row this morning, including some new faces. We launched Sea Breeze from the beach on an incoming tide. Had a brief skirmish with our old sparring partner, the Eyemouth Lifeboat — yes, Bing, we really do try and keep out of your way. Crew changeover on the beach and out for more rowing.
Spent a lovely morning on Seabreeze. We were not able to get into the bay but messed about in the harbour – great fun. Finished off by going to Oblo for a warming coffee and blether.
Had the first row of the year in Arctic conditions . A wee bit difficult to launch and retrieve due to height of the tide but we rewarded ourselves with coffee at OBLO. Well done crew. Sorry no photos
What a lovely morning we had this morning. Coffee, Mince Pies and Christmas Cake with Seabreeze in the bay. Next row will be on Old Year’s Morning, weather permitting
We are hoping to have a long rowing session with both boats on Saturday. So we’re like eveyone who can to come down to the Pontoon at 10:00am on Saturday 21st May. If conditions are suitable we’d like to take the St Abbs boat at least as far as Coldingham Sands if not all the way to St Abbs and back.
We intend to have a practice session on Friday 20th, at 5:00pm at the Pontoon in Eyemouth. Depending on numbers it may just be the St Abbs boat that we take out. However we’re getting a fair bit of interest so if we get the number we’ll arrnage for both boat to go rowing.
