ELEVEN crews from Nithsdale Rowing Club took part in the largest one day regatta held on Castle Semple Loch near Lochwinnie, on Saturday.

It involved over 130 races over a six lane 1000 metre course and featured teams from across Scotland and the North of England.
The weather was a force to contend with, with rowers having to row into a strong head wind which made it very difficult for some crews, even causing some to capsize.
But the gusts didn’t deter one youngster, who had the best race of the day.
Nithsdale 11-year-old Anderson Black was competing in his first race in the J12 scull beginners event. And the Amisfield Primary pupil beat his nearest rivals from Loch Lomond and Strathclyde Park by at least eight lengths to win.

Another win of the day came from the men’s novice quad composite crew of Andrew Dunce (Nithsdale), Harry Clingan (CUCBC), Graham Dunce (Nithsdale), Ross Morrison (CUCBC) and cox Mathew Leslie (CUCBC).
