April roundup

April brought us just about every combination of weather conditions,club sessions have continued to be well attended,some days due to very strong winds and rough seas these were restricted to inner harbour rowing,other days we had brilliant sunshine and flat conditions this allowing some excellent extended rowing ,trips round to South beach and landing ashore for ice creams also some trips out across to Lady Isle as usual being treated to sights of inquisitive seals. Also got the chance for a row around visiting minesweeper HMS Cattistock

Loch Ken trip was a resounding success  accompanied by our neighbours Carrick,Girvan and Prestwick two days of rowing/racing and general nonsense set in a beautiful location,the weather being very kind to us,most attending opted to stay overnight in one of the cabins ,the wonderful Annette from Carrick providing huge quantities of hot food to refuel the rowers,evening of music and song and one or two drinks,morning start of full cooked breakfast before the start of second day of rowing
