St Ayles kits in Cape Town

It’s a familiar sight to many people involved in the world of the St Ayles Skiff, but represents a major new step for the class.

The kits are now being cut near Cape Town, and can be shipped all over southern Africa.

The first builders are Hout Bay Yacht Club, ten miles south of Cape Town, with assistance from boat builders Peter Adamo and Roy McBride of CKD Boats. They have a very ambitious plan to grow coastal rowing at Hout Bay, and are hoping that other boating clubs in the area and along the South African coast will share the interest to build up a rowing scene to rival that in Scotland.

We’re pleased to see this happening, and will now be concentrating on getting the next cutting licence agreed in another Southern Hemisphere country.
