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.
We’ll be out rowing again on 16th April at 11:30 am. If you want to give it a try come along. The Puffin and the Unity will be taking to the water together for the first time.
The Coble house is the building at the southern end of Eyemouth beach, next to the slipway.
Thank you to everyone who attended our first AGM last week. The minutes will be out shortly. Thanks also to George Shaw for the use of The Mission.
The Sandsend Dredger is doing it’s stuff in the harbour for the next few days and so the rowing practice this Saturday has been cancelled.
Hopefully we can have a practice next Saturday subject to weather and the dredger.
Due to the bad weather tonight’s training session has been cancelled.
The next practice night on Tuesday 6th October maybe the last one of the evening for this year. The nights are drawing in quickly and it is felt that we need to move the practice times and day to a weekend. Please come along on Tuesday so we can agree a new time and day.
