I want to be there….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!Beautiful 🙂ohh that is beautiful xxWhat a stunning picture and a stunning place. Bleak and beautifulThat beach is anything but bleak! Nowhere with a beer tent can be bleak, surely!Great picture! So, how many people actually row these boats? Do you get teams coming over from Bergen or Orkney?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.What a beautiful place. I want to go there!Beer on standby if you make it this far north!Absolutely stunning. I so want to be there.You live near there? Soooo jealous. Scotland is such a beautiful place.Just up the road, actually. And it’s a stunningly beautiful place!Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
