Some photos from Saturday’s picnic row Kinghorn to Burntisland to Aberdour, to Inchcolm and return. 12 skiffs left Kinghorn just before 10am and returned at 5pm. Weather was sunny and bright, company was great and the scenery and wildlife on route was most enjoyable. And a big thank you to Jim for towing Flying Boat and Alex and Dai for taking Catalina. And a big thank you to Kinghorn for the invite.

A good evening on the water with a fun if bumpy ride to the rail bridge between piers 16-17, followed part of the way by our resident seal. Greeted a member of the bridge repair crew as he walked to his place of work. Then flew home with the wind in the crews faces but with the sunset in their eyes
What a difference a few hours can make, the morning crew launched into a slight mist then into brilliant warm sunshine, so down through the Road Bridge & back up & through the Railway Bridge. The afternoon crew up past Birkhill house against a good breeze & turning tide. After break for tea & biscuits – a quick return home with the wind & tide, A busy day for the Flying Boat – over 5 hours on the water.
A 3 hour misty excursion down past Tentsmuir, watched the pilot boat head out & return with a ship heading for Perth. Loads of wildlife around to attract our interest, Then the return home with the mist getting thicker as we returned. absolutely skifftatstic.
