Club members,
sponsored cycle
friends and family were invited to take part in a sponsored cycle along Loch Lomond's cycle path. The weather was perfect (no rain) and the wind pushed us along nicely for 14 miles to Firkin Point, where we had a picnic surrounded by beautiful scienery. The 14 miles back to the club house was a battle against the wind. Some stopped of in Luss for an ice cream to load up with sugar to get the energy to finish their cycle.

Saturday 15th Dec.
LLRC had a Scratch Regatta with 3 quads (with a few people changing over for the second race) competing against each other over 500m. Apart from being cold, the weather held out and we all had a very enjoyable morning and good racing. A few crabs were caught during racing and some steering problems were experienced, but nobody fell in and we all finished the races.  Andy's crew managed to win both races, even after the cox changed with a crew member.
The Veterans ("the old one") - Andy, Martin, Ian and Eva -  were challenged by the juniors for a race, which had a close finish, but the juniors had the edge and won!

Well done - the "vets" will get you next time!
Afterwards we were all rewarded by delicious soup and home made bread and lots of home baking!
