St Ayles Skiff – the documentary

It is now ten years since the St Ayles Skiff began its fantastic journey from Alec Jordan’s idea getting the backing of the Scottish Fisheries Museum to where we are today with well over 300 kits sold around the world and thousands of people enjoying them.

To mark this incredible decade, an effort is being made to crowdfund the production costs of a documentary on the skiff. There is a crowdfunding site for you to make a contribution. There is “sub-target” of £5000 to be raised before Skiffie Worlds in July so that the film-makers can attend for the week and make a good start while we have hundreds of people together.

Here is the message on the Crowd Funder page…

Next year, 2020, marks the first ten years of Scottish Coastal Rowing. Join us to celebrate this milestone by helping to crowdfund a film which will capture how it all started and showcase where we are today.

To kick-start our fundraising, we are asking you – our coastal rowing community – to donate whatever you can. Why not have a club fundraiser and donate the proceeds? Or spread the word amongst your friends and ask them to do the same. If everyone chips in what they can, we will commission film-makers Raw Film, who recently made the SCRA training videos,  to go ahead.

The finished film will be available to everyone online for years to come. Play your part in recording our history and let’s make something special.

Here is the link again…. Let’s get these funds raised!
