July 2020 Update
All our club members have been missing our beloved rowing these past few months. Today marks the day where we would have been carrying the Row Around Scotland Baton across our stretch of water. And what a beautifully calm day it would have been for us.
The Row Around Scotland Event was taking place this summer to mark 10 years of Coastal Rowing. Due to the Covid 19 situation this has had to be postponed until 2021 but a virtual version of the Event is still being held online. You can find out more about the event here. https://www.rowaround.scot/
Our club has taken some time to reflect on our love of rowing over the last wee while and we have shared our thoughts about what rowing means to us.
Heather, one of our junior club members, has also written a piece for the Virtial Row Around Log Book which you can read here. https://www.rowaround.scot/virtual_legs/findhorn-to-lossiemouth-section-8-day-4/
It lets you imagine what the row along our part of the coast might have been like today.
We can not wait to get back out on the water when it is safe to do so and although we already appreciate how lucky we are to row in a beautiful part of the world we will appreciate it so much more in the months and years to come. It is more than worth the wait.
For now we will have to make do with the beautiful views from the harbour wall. Not bad for second best though.
