Lovely to see all the medal winners – v well done everyone!
Is there a similar News item I missed for the recent Winter Head in Inverness? Obviously I’m biased, but I’d love to see a similar puff piece for the winners from that event, which included my son Hugh Dow Ewing (and partner Andrey Tepelchuk) in the J15 Pairs – v proud of them both!
