New Skiffs on the Bristol Channel?


All Aboard Watersports took their skiff Edward Colston down to Lydney in Gloucestershire to for a demonstration row yesterday.

Keen rower Sue Llewellyn and amateur boatbuilder Steve Brown have teamed up to start a skiff build at Lydney. Yesterday saw a good number of people turn out in a biting north-easterly wind reminiscent of Fife to watch the Bristol boat go through its paces on the Severn Estuary.

About thirty people added their names to the interest sheets, so the next stage will be a meeting at Lydney Yacht Club on Thursday 14th April at 7 for 7.30pm to listen to Alec Jordan present the story of the St Ayles, and plan how to move forward.

All will be welcome; people from other nearby communities are also welcome to attend.
