The Applecross skiff is a boat building project, it will be the first in our community and is being built by local people for the health and enjoyment of local people.
This is an exciting new project and will get us out on the water and competing with other coastal clubs in the area.
Coastal rowing is growing in popularity. Here in Applecross, we are building a St Ayles skiff, a modern take on a traditional Fair Isle skiff, which in turn is a descendent of a Viking boat design.
We hope to take part in regattas from May to September – competitive but social affairs which usually end with a BBQ on the beach.
Socialising is a big part of the appeal for participants, it’s good for the community and enables people to make connections with each other.
You are all welcome to come and see the progress we are making on the skiff.
Please help by making a donation to our crowd funding page so we can complete the boat and buy a trailer.
Please send the link to all your friends and visitors to Applecross who would be interested in supporting this community project.
