Arran were the overall regatta winners.Arran club supplied soup,rolls and salad with tea and coffee.On Saturday night a barbeque was arranged along with wine,beer and a DJ.
On Sunday 6 teams took part in the Hamilton Rock challenge which was a demanding 6.2 Km row from Lamlash pier round the rock and back into a stiff wind.FOCCRS won this inaugural challenge. Troon came 6th with two rowers from FOCCRS making up our team.
10 Troon members visited Arran Coastal Rowing Club for a fun day.With perfect weather conditions a serious of short races were carried out with mixed crews in Arran,s two skiffs. Liked the umpires discretion decision when one skiff was so far ahead he ordered a 360 turn to let the other skiff catch up.All at Troon wish to thank Arran members for inviting and organising a great day out.
Both skiffs out in Troon bay round the bouys in great weather.
