We appreciate that this website is "creaking at the
seams" - a new website is under development - there are only so many things
one can do!
The St Ayles Skiff is by far our best selling kit, with over 80
purchased in the UK, and nearly 50 between the USA, Canada, Netherlands,
Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
The prototype was launched on October 24th 2009, and the first
Regatta took place in May 2010 with six skiffs.
The first St Ayles Skiff World Championships took place in Ullapool
in July 2013, with crews from the UK, USA, Netherlands, and
Australia. The Champion Club is Coigach, a community of 300 souls
in the Scottish Highlands.
For the future, interest has also been received from St Lucia,
Barbados, Brazil, South Africa and the Bahamas. We are actively
looking for agents to supply the kits in more locations worldwide.

Trap, and several kits
