Saturday 24th August saw the Admiral Redsocks and crews head south to sunny
Stonehaven to enjoy a day’s racing as part of the wider Harbour Festival. The Redsocks
was joined by skiffs from Portsoy, Catterline and Pittenweem and friendly rivalry was
renewed in fantastic boating conditions.
Extraordinary team effort saw the Admiral Redsocks placed first overall, receiving a
beautiful hand-turned spalted birch bowl as winners of the inaugural Stonehaven Regatta
2014, followed closely by Pittenweem’s Fisher Lass, the Spirit of Catterline and the Soy
Loon. Following a mighty rendition on the Old Pier, it’s likely that refrains of ‘Speed the
Admiral Redsocks’, are still echoing around Stonehaven Harbour.

Through, storm, fog and just a wee bit sunshine, the Admiral Redsocks carried its precious cargo of a keg of Brewdog’s finest IPA down the Ythan from Ellon, over the treacherous Ythan bar and up the coast to Collieston. It arrived just in time to fuel the festivities during Collieston’s Gala week.
Everyone is welcome to join in the last night of some family fun on the evening of 27th August at the Boules Piste behind the former Coastguard Houses by the telephone box.
