Firth of Clyde Coastal Rowing Club launched their second community built skiff at the weekend.  “Thistle” is number 93 on the St Ayles Register of Craft.  Cumbrae, Troon, Carrick and Royal West attended the launch to welcome the new skiff to the waters of the Clyde.  The Cumbrae crew had rowed across from Kames Bay.

The name and her very recognisable colour scheme by the pupils of Farlie Primary School.  The naming ceremony was carried out by May Fife McCallum with kind words and a blessing!
