Shetland in summer (3) - rowing
Shetland has approximately 900 miles of coastline and the sea is never more than about 5 km away so boats and rowing are an integral part of island life.
Rowing races gained popularity over the last 20 years. These photos are from a day of racing where teams and their yoals (rowing boats) gathered from all parts of Shetland. I seem to have missed photos including knitwear but there wasn't much to be seen that day.
