The Red Boat is Launched on Iona


A real beauty has emergeed from a shed on the Isle of Iona.  “The Red Boat” was launched by the community on Sunday.  The Red Boat is number 145 on the St Ayles Skiff Craft Register.

She was named by Norah Kirkpatrick, in front of a large gathering of islanders on a stunning day, with Iona looking its very best in tribute to the work of the community boat builders.  She was welcomed onto the water by a salute from a skiff of the neighbouring island of Mull.

 

 

 

Congratulations to all the skiffbuilders and to the community of Iona.  Welcome to Scottish Coastal Rowing and good luck in using your beautiful skiff.  All Photos from the Iona Boat Association Facebook Page.  More launches coming up shortly at Golspie and Lochcarron.
