The Two boats were rowed to Portobello Today in a heavy North Westerly wind, ( Force 4 ). It took the 12 strong crew of the two boats just under 4 hours to row the 9 miles up through the heavy wind and sea. Eilish and Margaret Both never stopped all the way there! The Other 10 consisted of Jackie, John and Kathryn Berg, Gareth Jones, Marietta Dicacca, Stuart Mack, Robin Abbey, John Curtis Along with 2 relativly new rowers who done extremly well today Sir Jon Dangerous and Lucy. It is a great achievement for the club. Less then a year after the first boat launch to be able to row such a Distance in such weather. Again a extra Well done to Eilish and Margaret and all the crew involved who will sleep well tonight, Well deserved!!
