The sun shone at Royal West on Saturday, just like it always does!

Seven clubs enjoyed a day of close racing and catching up with friends from afar. Royal West promised us a relaxed regatta, and so it was – but no-one took it easy on the water. Our Womens’ Open crew came second to Anstruther by 0.34s – and that was the story for much of the day. Anstruther took home most of the medals, winning 4 of the seven races, but a consistently strong performance by North Berwick crews meant that we shared the honours with equal points overall. Every stroke counted!

NBRC and Anstruther have won this regatta for the last six years, and this was a great end to the day. Thanks to Royal West for making us all so welcome and running a super regatta!

And bragging rights… go to the old boys, with the fastest time of the day, bringing home gold in the Mens 50+. <Smug Mode On>

Did I mention fastest time of the day already? Really? Did I? Oh.
