A group of friends from London who undertake various charity challenges (including having rowed the Shannon, and the Thames) have contacted SCRA to ask if anyone can lend them a suitable boat for rowing the length of the Great Glen in September. They hope to raise a few thousand pounds in the process for charity. Their plan is to set off from West of Fort William on 3 September and take the week to wend their way to Inverness.
They recognise that Loch Ness can be a bit lumpy, as well as being infested with monsters, and have worked out that the St Ayles is a good for the sort of chop they might find. They probably don’t think that they have enough time to build a St Ayles, although the ladies in Portland might disagree.
If you have a boat that you might be able to lend or hire to them for the trip please conact Vince Harte through firstname.lastname@example.org .
The St Ayles is a great design for adventure as well as for racing. Plan some adventures in your St Ayles and we will be delighted to post reports on them here.
