    1. The beach is St Ninian’s on Shetland – it’s a tombolo, one of those rare beaches that has the sea on each side. It never quite meets in the middle, though it does get very close! There’s a chunk more information and some wonderful pictures over on the Shetlopedia (http://shetlopedia.com/St_Ninian%27s_Isle_Tombolo). The occasion was the Bigton (one of the most mis-named places I’ve ever been to!) Regatta. First races of the 2011 Yoal season and my first race as a competitor. Fantastic day, fantastic crowd. My boat came in last, but then the rest of the men’s teams looked ever so much more professional!

    1. Teams of 7 – 6 rowers plus a cox. All local teams at this event, no-one from further afield. Apparently one of the more dedicated men’s teams is planning a row to Faroe! Rather them than me.
