After months of training the day finally arrived for the very first castle to crane race. The race which started at Dumbarton castle and the route took the 75 skiffs up the river clyde for 13 miles to the finnieston crane. We took 2 boats down to the race one womens open crew and a mixed crew. The weather was very kind with clear skies and very little wind. It was amazing to see all 75 skiffs along with a collection of other rowing boats take to the water in Dumbarton. After a long 13 miles we are excited to say that our women’s open team are the very first winner’s of the castle to crane race with the mixed crew coming in a great 5th place in their group. We have got the long distance race bug now. Well done everyone what an amazing day .
