The Strangford St Ayles Project

In late 2013, the Strangford Lough and Lecale Partnership from County Down in Northern Ireland contacted Jordan Boats about the possibility of building St Ayles Skiffs in eight communities around the Lough and close by. Troon CRC kindly offered to provide a skiff for a try out in January 2014, and following this, an order was placed for nine skiff kits.
Within a few months, the local groups were making good progress, with the builds being videoed to record the project for posterity. This video has now been released and can be found here:

It is thirty-eight minutes long but well worth every second to get a feel of what the St Ayles Skiff is about in engaging Communities in a project, both for those who have been involved from the start, and for anyone thinking of trying to start building a St Ayles in your community.
