Important date changes

Club captain Dónal writes: As you will know, next Saturday is the 10th Birthday of Ferry Lass. The 10th Anniversary Sub Committee had envisaged that we would have a Youth Crew out in the Lass coxed by Peter to celebrate the occasion.

However, with the passing last week of the Duke of Edinburgh and his Funeral being announced for Saturday at 1500, it has been decided that we postpone the Row by 24hrs . Therefore the 10th Birthday Row will take place on Sunday 18th at 1400  The idea is to row down towards Queensferry Harbour for 1430 so that we can all take part in the celebrations, observing Covid Regulations of course. 

The Raise a Glass for the Lass  will still take place on Zoom on Saturday 17th April at 1930.  I will send out the link again closer to the time.

Meanwhile, as you may have seen on the SCRA Calendar, our Regatta is down for August 21st, however having been in touch with Port Edgar Yacht Club, it turns out that they have an event on that day too. This means that both Faithful and the RIB will be in use, leaving us without a safety boat or a starter’s boat on the Saturday – plus the fact that the Bay will be extremely busy. 

Because of this, it has been decided to move the Regatta to the Sunday, when we  will have access to Faithful and the RIB. The Regatta Sub Committee will be meeting within the next week to begin the planning of the Regatta, which will form part of Rowaround Scotland
