Toberonochy Open Day

Toberonochy June meeting 2We 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.
