St Ayles Rowing Club
The club was established in May 2010 as part of a community project to try and bring together people of all ages who would like to get involved with something that would not only help their fitness but more importantly as a social method of getting to know the people in your area and have a bit of fun along the way.
The initial idea behind this came from the Scottish Fisheries Museum who commissioned the first Skiff and the Scottish Coastal Rowing Project whose aim was to have communities building and rowing the boats in inter-community regattas.
Six years on and the rowing community has grown worldwide with skiffs now in Canada, USA, Netherlands, New Zealand and Australia. There have been two Skiff World Championships held already, one in 2013 at Ullapool and in 2016 Strangford Lough in Ireland the craze has no signs of fading.
As the sport develops we aim to continue on the success that the club has achieved not only within our own community but in the wider field of skiff racing and enlighten people to the benefits of rowing for health and social well-being.
