Skiffies at Illumination: Harbour Festival of Light

Clubs are invited to attend the Scottish Maritime Museum’s ‘Illumination: Harbour Festival of Light’ in Irvine on Saturday 2nd December.

The festival, which returns for its second year, features an Illumination Trail, a Lantern Parade and a Light, Fire and Aerial Art Spectacular, but most importantly – skiffs! Last year, a number of clubs enjoyed a casual row on Irvine’s rivers before dressing their skiffs with lights and parading in their illuminated skiffs for onlookers to enjoy.

This year, there will be a number of informal pursuit-style races from 11am-5pm and a BBQ ahead of another bigger and better illuminated row past. Fancy joining in? Email to register for free. All participants will receive a 20% discount (via a code) on tickets for the Light, Fire and Aerial Art Spectacular.
