Wormit Boating Club on the Tay launched their second St. Ayles Skiff last Sunday 22nd March.
‘The Flying Boat’ joins her sister skiff ‘Catalina’, launched last September, both named for the Norwegian Flying Boats, operated by theRoyal Norwegian Air Force which were once stationed in nearby Woodhaven, during World War II.
Wormit’s second skiff build was funded by local man Ralph Webster, whose Uncle served in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was a member of the Flying Boat crew, in Catalina Flying Boat number AJ-55.
Skiffs from nearby St. Ayles (Anstruther), St. Andrews, Newburgh and Broughty Ferry turned out to welcome ‘The Flying Boat’ and a fine day of friendly (semi-serious) racing was enjoyed by all against a backdrop of the Tay Bridges.
Well done Wormit!
