Icebreaker goes to Eyemouth

On Sunday, Icebreaker, crew, family and friends descended on Eyemouth to help the Eyemouth Community Rowing Project celebrate the launch of their first skiff – the bright yellow Unity.

It was a very windy day which made launching at the end of the beach a little more interesting than necessary. Port Seton was there with Boatie Rows, and North Berwick with the St Baldred.

The racing was great fun – and hard work in the strong wind and heavy chop. It sometimes seemed like more time – and energy – was spent getting the boats lined up to start than actually racing.

After the racing and before the barbeque kindly laid on by Eyemouth, the children had a jaunt – with icecream – around the harbour.

Many thanks to Eyemouth Community Rowing Project for inviting us down and laying on such hospitality – which started at midday with tea and cakes in their palatial workshop, where we had sight of the St Abbs boat being built and their collection of old lifeboat oars.
