It was great rowing with you. What great water you all have to row on! And the boat and rigging fit perfectly once I lengthened out my stroke. Had a pleasant cruise from Fort William to Inverness on the Fingal -- lot's of walking and biking. Quite pretty and unspoiled, all in all. In this country such a stretch would have been trashed by commercial interests. Inverness strikes me as a rather liveable small city.
Good luck in your Fall races. I'll race every weekend through end of October, including Head of Charles. Sure I'll be back. Again, thanks for your hospitality.
Best regards, ALAN
