Blue Bay Launch

5th June 2016 - Blue Bay Launch

Blue Bay launch Crew

Sunday, 5th June saw the launch of our second boat Blue Bay. The whole event and the day in general was a great success. There were a few surprises, the first of which was lovely weather with brilliant sunshine. The Wormit and Anstruther Clubs managed to attend and rowed out towards West Sands before the launch ceremony which was introduced by Stephen Spackman. Then Blue Bay was then named and launched by Julie Hardisty.

After the official part, we all gathered at the harbour gates under our gazebos for the food and refreshments. It was great to see the harbour nice and busy and Cameron Rae, who is the Harbour Trust chairman was very complimentary of our efforts and the buzz that we were able to create around the harbour, complete with Graeme's bunting.

The highlights were many, but one that stands out is managing to take out Mrs Hogg in Sand Bay Century for a ride around the harbour. Mrs Hogg donated £100 for oars and so it was a real treat to get this lady of senior years into the boat and to recognise her generosity in such a public and appropriate manner.
