Open Day for the St Ayles Skiff in Norfolk

The Coastal Rowing Association of Blakeney would love you to drop in to Ian Duffill’s workshop in Thurning on Sunday March 3rd (2-5pm)  to see the progress we are making on “Hoi Larntan” – the St Ayles Skiff we are building. This is a traditional 22ft, 5 man, wooden boat – popular in Scotland but this is the first in England. You will be amazed by what our dedicated group of boatbuilders have achieved, which is fortunate as we are planning to go to the World Skiffie championships in Ullapool in July. We plan to run a Norfolk Regatta next year and so we are hoping to inspire you  to build yourself a skiff and try traditional rowing! Ian has very detailed instructions on how to find his house if you send us an email at We look forward to seeing you then.
