The BBC Alba TV channel has made a programme about the amazing Scottish Coastal Rowing, in which communities build St Ayles skiffs designed by Iain Oughtred to kits supplied by Alec Jordan, and race them in a series of regattas and events across Scotland and beyond.
My thanks to Osbert Lancaster for the tip – see his weblog Forthsailor.
The growth of the new style of rowing over the past two years has been a phenomenon, with more than 40 of the boats built.
The programme’s available on the BBC iPlayer for the next few days. Catch it if you can!
