There are moves afoot on the Isle of Seil to become involved in the Scottish Coastal Rowing movement. The Island, about 15 miles south of Oban, is surrounded by some of the best water around our coasts for the sort of rowing that we do, with miles of relatively flat water in the shelter of Seil and Luing and lumpy stuff when wanted on the Atlantic sided of the Island in the Firth of Lorne. Indeed it would be perfect water for any skiffies wanting to take part in the cruising log competition, and your Convenor had a fantastic trip doing an 11 mile circumnavigation of the Island under sail and oar recently.
However, back to the point, do you think that “The Isle of Seil” should be part of all this? Would you like to help build a St Ayles skiff for the Isle of Seil and / or help to crew it? If so you are warmly invited to an open meeting at 7.30 on Wednesday 16th May in Seil Hall. It is hoped that the project will involve all of Seil, with the need for teamwork building, fundraising, rowing and organising of all ages and skills. Anyone wanting to get in touch with ideas in advance of the meeting or to find out more please send an email to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or if neither of those are working….. try firstname.lastname@example.org or check the website at http://www.seilskiff.org.uk/
