Skiff 19: Galgael Join the Fleet


The first Galgael build made it onto the water at Anstruther Harbour on Friday afternoon, just in time to join the fun in the Anster Regatta on Saturday.

Gobhancroit was built by pupils of Smithycroft High School & St Mungo’s Academy as part of the Sense over Sectarianism project, under the guidance of Galgael.

When launched on Friday, she was crewed by Galgael, who bravely took her out to race on Saturday morning.

The second Galgael skiff is close to completion, and we’ll see her on the water before too long.

For the record...the Galgael Crew

    Good to see you guys there on Saturday, hope to see you at the forthcoming SCRA events and I understand you are attending Dalriada Festival. Royal West are taking two skiffs to Antrim, stay in touch in case we can be of assistance.

    Thanks Anstruther for the welcome! We had a great time weather conditions notwithstanding.
    Yeah Adam, we’re off to Dalriada, we might need a bit of training before we attempt the 7km row… Will be getting on it first thing monday!
