RowPorty – A Celebration – Fri 10th Jan 2014

What better way to start the new year than with a celebration of all things Row Porty?

  • Ever wondered how the whole Scottish Coastal Rowing revival came about?
  • How did Row Porty get started?
  • What does a skiff build look like from start to finish?
  • How did our boats get their names?

On Friday 10th January, at Portobello Community Centre, otherwise known as The Wash House, we will be taking you on a journey from the very first days of Row Porty right up to the present time. There will be a slide show, video clips, guest appearances and stalls displaying all manner of things from medals and trophies to strange tools used in the boat build.

As if that isn’t exciting enough, there will a screening of ‘Row Porty – The Movie’. This is a video document of a year in the life of Row Porty as teams attend a variety of regattas across Scotland and beyond. The film was made by one of our junior rowers, Katya and is an amazingly professional and entertaining piece of work. It also gives an insight into what’s involved in a regatta and the different conditions we find ourselves in. So, if you plan to race in 2014, come and see what you’re letting yourself in for!

This event is a great opportunity for long time members and those newer to the club to come together, have a wee celebration and muster our rowing prowess for the year ahead.

So, please sign up and come along. This is a one-off event, probably never to be repeated. Don’t miss it :)
