Rosehearty Community Boat Club took part in the Portsoy Festival this year.

Both the club’s Yole and Motor launch were taken to Portsoy on the Thursday prior to the event and were brought home on the following Wednesday.

The team included Ian Duthie, John Burnett, John Duthie, Ian Gatt and Scott Henderson.

They enjoyed the Festival as usual and were able to think up some exciting plans for next year’s event.

A deal of interest was shown in both the history and construction methods of the two Rosehearty boats and this in itself made the trip worthwhile.

The weather was not kind for the return journey to Rosehearty and the journey proved to be quite a challenge.

The club would like to take this chance to say a big “Thank you” to Buchan College for their donation of a selection of boat building tools and materials.

They will be on prominent display at the boat club’s open day on September 1 this year.
