St Ninian’s beach was bathed in sunshine on Saturday as the Bigton Regatta opened the 2013 yoal rowing season.
The conditions made for a spectacular scene as scores of spectators and participants milled around on the beach making the most of the weather.
Photographer Kevin Jones was at the regatta and a selection of his photographs can be seen in our gallery.
Racing started at 3pm and went on into the early evening as festivities continued on the shore. There were games of beach volleyball and organisers had planned a sand castle competition and tug o’ war while the beer tent drew a big crowd.
With the racing over the evening festivities got underway with music and a beach bonfire.
