Club St.Ayles Skiff Regatta on Saturday

This Saturday & Sunday we will be hosting clubs from Bristol, Anstruther, N. Berwick, Carrick, Troon, Fairlie & Port Seton. Also some stragglers from Girvan, Portobello and Cumbrae. Some of the visiting clubs are camping in the back garden, others are staying in various hotels and accommodation in town.

Racing starts at 10am on Saturday over a triangular course from the Club beach to Whiteforeland buoy, then to a temp mark off Roseneath Street Slip, before a final sprint back to the beach. The Club has crews in 8 of the 9 events we are running, only short of some 55+ Ladies to make it 9/9.

The day will be rounded off with a quiz and dancing in the evening. Be in your seats ready for the start of the quiz at about 8pm.

Sunday is planned as a leisurely row to Kilcreggan for lunch, then maybe a wander up to show some of our guests the industrial riverfront, from the river.

Anyone who can spare some time during the day on Saturday to help with the café or just attending to take in the atmosphere is invited to do so. The bar will be open on Saturday from 12:30, just in time for a break in the racing.
