The 1st of August saw the return of an event that had sadly fallen on hard times. The ‘Race round the rock’ had been part of the Shieldaig fete for many years but over recent times had been dropped due to a lack of interest. Organiser Ruairidh Maclennan decided to try and revive the event by inviting some of the skiffing community and as you might expect we rallied to the call.
In total nine skiffs attended from eight clubs and despite the changeable weather the event was a real success. They Shieldaig community are already planning for next years event and intend to have their own skiff built and ready to take their place along side us on the start line.
Avoch put in another storming performance finishing in second place overall only behind the World Champions Achiltiebuie who had a strong team out.
Well done to Ruairidh and his team and we all hope to see you in the lane beside us next year.
