We set off from the Pontoon just after midday and rowed down against tide and wind to Toberonochy, arriving about 1345, where we were greeted by a good percentage of the population and enjoyed cheery chat, burgers and tea.
We were challenged to a race against the two Luing skiffs, a nice triangular course out across the Sound and back, about 1 kilometre. Selkie came in first, followed by the big Shetlander and Hinba third. This could count as Selkie’s first actual win!
The return trip entailed a brisk row up through Ardinamir against a tide that ran like a little river, followed by a real skoosh out through Cuan and a gentle row behind a nice Southerly breeze. Back on pontoon by 1715 in time for Selkie’s evening excursion.
