going for gold 800x533

Ullapool Coastal Rowing Club had a great outing at Avoch regatta on 21 October. The day began with a warm welcome, weather hotter than July, and a shedload of cake, and ended with an excellent haul of medals.

Coached and coxed by Tom Grant, our youth squad did us proud, achieving gold or silver in every category. The seniors didn’t do too bad either, with gold for the Open Men and Open Mixed, and there was an excellent bronze for the 200+ Mixed team, who went well beyond the call of duty with the rowers having a combined age of 267 years!

With our medal winners ranging in age from under 16 to over 70, coastal rowing truly is a sport for all ages.
