The Great Loch Earn Boat Race
A splendid fun filled event with competitors, participants and spectators having great sport while raising significant funds for charity takes place each year in Spring and covers the length of Loch Earn. This splendid event has raised some £65,00 for charity since it started some 12 years ago with the crews nominating their own charity for sponsorship. Free to spectators, the Race cost £80 for participating boats.
In the 2011 Loch Earn challenge, the 2009 team of Gray and the three Turkeys reclaimed their title with a very impressive time of 1 hour and 48 minutes. The winning veterans team "the Village Idiots" reclaimed their title with an excellent time of 2 hours and 8 minutes.
The winners from all these Lochside exertions were local charities who benefited form the ober £5,500 raised.
