Sail and Oar weekend

by Sandy Morton

Big thanks to everyone who organised, contributed and took part in this event - one of the best Millport weekends I can remember.  The skiff racing was brilliant although Cumbrae didn't win a race but did come second overall.  The visiting skiffs and skiffers were all most compimentary.  The events in the Garrison appeared to be very good although it's the first time I've been able to attend so I can't compare.  Cumbrae came home first in a lovely row in company round the Wee Cumbrae (thanks for my taxi Alex!).  Raft race looked to be very good again and thanks to Gillian for organising it (hope you made megabucks).  I have posted my photos at www.millport.net although there must be hundreds if not thousands which are much better.

Congratulations are due the teams behind both the Sail & Oar Festival and the building/crewing of the "Cumbrae" Skiff. Both things add greatly to the image of the Island.

I had a grandstand view of the "Cumbrae" in action in Kames Bay from my window and have added a specific gallery on the millport.org web site with these pictures. It is at http://www.millport.org/gallery.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind words and the great photos - it was great to see Cumbrae and the other skiffs being rowed and enjoyed
