Over 72 nautical miles from the Isle of Whithorn, home of our club, to Stranraer, RowAround was never going to be an easy task for us. Add to that the restrictions of 2020, and RowAround 2020 became a virtual event for everyone. Now in 2021, we have started RowAround Scotland 2021 before we are allowed to get together to row. We have cycled, run, walked, kayaked, and paddleboarded to Stranraer to celebrate the Year of Coasts and Waters 2021, and 10 years of the Scottish Coastal Rowing Association.
We are especially excited to have travelled through Portpatrick, where they are borrowing our frame and moulds to build the next St Ayles skiff for the Scottish fleet. Welcome to the team Portpatrick. We shall all be rowing for real soon!
