Yesterday, 27th Feb, ‘Ulla’ the Ullapool ‘A’ teams Skiff was turned with the assistance of the other Loch Broom Skiffie groups. Well satisfied with progress so far the group then had a small celebration and considered the next stages.

We are intending paying a visit to London over the weekend of 27/28 February, where the prototype will rowed from Richmond. There are already a couple of interested groups wanting to try her out with a view to using her for rowing the Great River Race.
If you would like to give her a try while she is in London, please contact Alec Jordan on 01592 560162. If you cannot make it for that weekend, there will be a St Ayles Skiff at the Beale Park Thames Boatshow on the 4-6 June, where there will also be opportunities to try her out.
In perfect conditions, and with local modification, Chris o’Kanaird was tried out by several crews from Royal West. A crew from Lough Foyle also pitched up, and she seems to have made an impact.
