Portsoy regatta at the Scottish traditional boat festival took place over the weekend of the 26th-27th of June. The weather at this year’s regatta was great, unlike last year.
15 club’s took part in this years regatta , portsoy welcomed Avoch, Anstruther, Eastern , North Berwick, Boatie Blest, Bunillidh, Collieston, Catterline, Burghead, Findochty, Findhorn, Deveron, St Andrew’s and Cullen . Race’s took place over the two day’s and included 2km and sprint’s of 750m. Unfortanlly our junior crew’s didn’t compete as most were away on a school trip, but Erin and Drew did in some of our open team’s.
Our 2km race’s included Men’s open finishing 5th, Women’s open finishing 3rd, Mixed fresher finishing 3rd and our mixed open taking a 2nd well done guy’s.
As you can imagine sprint racing is fast , boat’s race for 750m with a turn , boat’s race in heat’s with 3 boats in each heat then the 3 fastest time’s go through to final.
Our sprint team’s did amazing this year well done
