Stornoway build on BBC Alba

I have had confirmation from Stornoway that they will be starting building the first Hebridean skiff in the New Year. To put some pressure on them, the progress of the build will be followed by BBC Alba with a view to finishing the program with them racing at Achiltibuie on the 21st of May next year.

It is a tight deadline, but as they have professional boatbuilders ready to assist, they should be able to do it.

There are also a couple of other groups in Lewis who are pulling things together, and I’m hoping that I will be sending a couple more kits north in January.
