A Second Skiff for Wick: Pulteney Lass Launched

On Friday last, 27th March, in the far north, Wick’s second St. Ayles Skiff took to the water for the first time. It’s a successful and satisfying conclusion to the build which started in late 2013, a sister skiff for ‘Spirit O’ Wick’ from a dedicated team of builders.

Ms. Anne Dunnet, Lord Lieutenant of Caithness and Honorary President of Wick Coastal Rowing Club, officiated at the naming and launch ceremony on Sunday afternoon, where a traditional quaich of Old Pulteney whisky wet the ‘Lass’s’bow and she pushed off from Wick harbour’s pontoons.

The weather was kind, with a break in the rain favouring the launch and allowing supporters and wellwishers to focus all of their attention on ‘Pulteney Lass’, skiff number 90 in the register.

Congratulations Wick, and thank you Fergus Mather, Wick CRC’s Club Photographer,  for lovely images from the day.
