Where are we
The 7th Annual Scottish Tug-in
The big day finally dawned and all the hard work & preparations finally paid off. The harbour complex and course all laid out, the newly refurbed 'Peter Sheperd' sporting it's new colour scheme .
With the sun destined to split the skies all day, it was guaranteed to be a great day and a great day it was.
There was a good turn out of wanna be tug skippers showing an impressive display of tug boats on and off the water. Throughout the whole day, there was plenty of action on the water, as the tug boats battled there way around the course.
We had the double tow where a two man team manoeuvred the 'Peter Sheperd', attached to the bow and stern, through the course without touching any of the obstacles. The single tow was put through its paces all day long, again being towed through the collection of hazards and obstacles, including wind farms, islands and an oil rig.
The public were kept entertained all day long with the towing action whilst they basked in the sun
The end of the show was marked, by awarding trophies to those skippers that completed the course with the minimum of faults, GRMBC members did well with a first and third in the double tow and a second in the single tow.
The Don Muir memorial trophy was awarded to Junior member, Johnny Mason who beat all the adults, including his dad, nice one Johnny
