First race of 2020

The Social Sub-Committee writes: So 2020 is off like a shot already, with our first race – the North v South challenge – happening on Saturday 25 January!!

As the main race is running south from North Queensferry, we shall be hosting the post-race social  this year.

The date is a special one in the Scottish calendar and appropriately we’ll be having a Burns theme to our hospitality, with Peter leading in the welcome to our guests. Our own chef Jenny has been commissioned to supply some suitable ‘scran’ (food). Thanks to both for their contributions!

The main race starts from the north at 2pm, with the fun race immediately before, leaving the south at 1.30pm. Prizes are kindly sponsored by Lorna’s Forth Reflections this year, so thank you for those!

So come along to watch the best racing so far this year and cheer on the crews!! You’ll be rewarded with warm food and good cheer after (of course bring your cup)!
