I replied to an email from Gordon who was asking if anyone would like to form a crew for the skiff that he had just finished building. Having been around boats most of my life I was keen to experience this new activity. I formed part of the crew for Mingulay’s first launch and from there we formed our club.
Being a busy working mum at that time as an air stewardess and take control dog training business, along with all my children’s activities I thought it would be a great opportunity for some exercise and to meet new people while at our holiday home in Dalavich. This has proven to be the case and has become a real family affair as my husband and children also enjoy rowing.
Since then we have became active members in the club by fund raising and enjoying different experiences and adventures.
