Ulla in the water when Coigach Lass from nearby Achiltibuie was launched with much ceremony. Ulla was rowed down Loch Broom for the occasion, and of course the very first St Ayles skiff race developed. It was entirely in the spirit of the Scottish Coastal Rowing project that each crew had members of both communities, and that Coigach Lass won.
The first St Ayles skiff regatta will take place at Anstruther next Saturday, May 29, when six skiffs are expected to turn out. Should be a great occasion. The Scottish Fisheries Museum will be free to enter for the day as well.
