Our Regatta happening Saturday!

Hoping the weather will be kind to us for Saturday’s racing. We are welcoming crews from round Scotland: Helmsdale, Portsoy, Newburgh, Newhaven, North Berwick, Portobello, Ardersier, Wick, the 2 skiff racing clubs in Ullapool as well as ourselves in Coigach Community Rowing with our boats ‘Coigach Lass’ and ‘Lily~Rose.’ Sunday will see  a flotilla of beautiful, hand-built skiffs rowing along the coast to the lovely sheltered beach at Acheninver for a picnic and bonfire if the weather is ‘in it’ as the Gaelic phrase goes. Looking forward!
