Pride of the Solway Joins the Fleet


 

Annan Harbour Action Group have launched their second St. Ayles skiff, “Pride of the Solway”, a sister ship for Pride of Annan. This boat build was begun in September 2016 and was finished last week with the final coat of paint being added to the oars. The boatbuilders usually met 3 times a week for a few hours each time and consisted of a number of AHAG members, students from Annan Academy and young adults being supported by Step Together, Dumfries.  Congratulations to all those involved and thanks to the funders, Dumfries and Galloway LEADER, Holywood Trust and Dumfries and Galloway Area Committee. The group are already moving on to the next build, which will be a Tammie Norrie, and are looking forward to welcoming skiffies to their forthcoming events on 22 and 23 July, being the Annan regatta on the Saturday, and a row in company to England for the Bell Ringer’s Raid on the Sunday.
