2020 Events


We do want to keep this as a comprehensive list of the huge amount of activity that goes on for St Ayles skiffs.  Please therefore ensure that your own event is here by contacting Sue Fenton (scwfenton@gmail.com).

Please send results and a brief report to secretary@scottishcoastalrowing.org within 24 hours of your event, so that folk can share their experiences and we can have a record of just how much racing etc has been done. Remember to submit your Cruising Log, recording adventurous journeys you have made during the year of a non-racing nature.
