Unfortunately Mother Nature decided to take part in the weekend’s activities with the introduction of thunderstorms, forcing the cancellation of the Saturday St Ayles skiff races. The Sunday three mile race however was able to go ahead as planned after some early morning showers. The sun even made an appearance for the after race lunch and awards ceremony. Despite the weather and the disappointment of the cancelled races we all had a great time visiting with our American neighbours. To complete our crews, two of them rowed with the Ayle of Quinte Skiff Club, Tom from the LCMM in Sea Shadow and Toby Goodrich in the William S Shipp.
