Community rowing in Musselburgh is moving forward at a rate of knots with the help of lottery funding of £10,000.

Eskmuthe Rowing Club, based at Fisherrow Harbour, has secured the grant from Awards for All to build and equip a second a boat.

Volunteers are now on the look out for premises in or close to the town with enough space for the construction project.

With its first skiff, Honesty, the club celebrated its first year in the water at the weekend, having organised a successful first regatta in July.
