We gathered at eight o'clock on a lovely Sunday morning, it was a tad chilly but with blue skies and not much wind. Ten lively club members were joined by a very cheery five from Amble Rowing Club, including our departed Alan Burt

We set off at a good pace but still had a bit of room for chat then reached Fidra and tied the boats up at the wee harbour then. Beware on future landings it's like walking on ice, so slippy. We all climbed up to the top armed with copious amounts of cake, and coffee, watching puffins from a safe distance. 

The tide was a bit lower than expected and required some clambering over rocks to enter the boats again. One NB boat set off to allow the next crew to get out whilst St Balded and Coquet Spirit headed off to go back round Craigleith. What a great mornings rowing, bonding with Amble and getting back with other team mates after a long winter.

Now what other expeditions can we get up-to......anyone can organise home or away so let's get planning, it's not all about regattas, training and having fun too it's what we do best.
