Scottish Coastal Rowing Newburgh North Fife
Saturday 15th September, in the middle of the town a loud-speaker from afar muffled in my ears, indicating the riverside Newburgh, North Fife, drawn, I headed that way. Bright and comfortably sunny, amiably littered about Robertson's Quay a gathering of participants and spectators were enjoying the regatta. A few large tents, one for Regatta business and others for light refreshments. St Ayles Skiff Regatta was underway. A strong westerly wind was putting up wee white horses, below is the start of the mens 40+, against the wind and tidal flow Crail and Newburgh battled their way upriver.
