The second of Loch Broom’s St Ayles skiffs, ┬áhas been launched – her splash took place just a day after the launch of Ulla, the area’s first boat to be completed as part of the Scottish Coastal Rowing Project. Congratulations folks – and thanks once again to Chris Perkins for the photos!

Named Coigach Lass, the new boat makes a total of three of the SCRP rowing skiffs on the water. Naturally Ulla’s crew brought their boat over, which resulted in the first ever meeting – and brief race – between two St Ayles skiffs. An account and photographs of this historic event can be found here.
