Anstruther Regatta

Well done to the Anstruther away team who braved another very windy day at the Anstruther regatta.  Honours go to the Men's Open crew who stormed to victory in the first race of the day, bringing home the first trophy of this season.  The bravest crews of the day were certainly the ladies 35+ and ladies open crews who battled against strengthening winds and bigger and bigger waves, scoring memorable third and second places.

After that the races were moved into the (relative) shelter of the harbour, where the rowing was still less than easy.  The short sprints didn't play to our strengths however, and we couldn't repeat the successes of the morning, but we broke two tillers and an oar trying!  Buoy turn practice anyone...?

Thanks to Anstruther for a super and well organised day, and to the lifeboat crew who kept a close eye on the racers as the waves piled higher and higher!
