More Skiffs Joining the Fleet: Alnmouth 12 May


There have been quite a few more skiffs launching recently. There are now 183 skiffs on the UK section of the Register of St Ayles skiffs. We have received the following invitation in from Alnmouth Community Rowing in Northumberland for you to join them for the launch of their second skiff.

Alnmouth Community Rowing second skiff is very nearly ready and we have set a launch/naming day!Sunday May 12th. In the fine tradition of the skiffie community it would be great to see you in the bay at Alnmouth, Northumberland.  We would love to be able to launch the newest member among the assembled fleet on the water.  So do please come if you can and definitely bring boats with you!Details are still being worked up but there will be a short ceremony around 3pm so ideally you will be able to get down here in good time before that and stay on for a bit too.  We will communicate more details nearer the time.  Obviously the weather and sea gods may conspire against us, and unfortunately the tide will be low.  At the very least we will get her wet even if there is no rowing in company and all that.We are very much looking forward to it, and hope you can join us.  It would help the admin if you could let us know you intend to join us; please email to Dave dsfoote@hotmail.com
