On Sept. 28th Dunbar Rowing Club hosted its Tweed Row from Tweedmouth to Paxton House and return, about 12 miles in total. This annual 'raid', organised by the Club's Paul Ingram, has increased in popularity every year and 2019's event hosted 22 skiffs. The weather was sunny and the skiffs managed to negotiate the shallows and deeps of this tidal part of the Tweed, rowing even past Paxton House to upriver of the chain-link bridge (the famous Union Suspension Bridge).

NB: Border reivers were raiders along the Anglo-Scottish border
