Kaikoura Skiff nearly completed!

Wow, just ad an update from the Kaikoura menz shed and their skiff is coming along amazingly quickly. Looks like a fantastic place to build a St Ayles skiff.

The boat is now off the off the molds with seats and gunwales nearly completed and oars built, painting and finishing to go.

Awesome work guys look forward to getting all the Kiwi skiffs together soon.

Second Skiff launched in New Zealand today

A momentous occasion today as the second St Ayles skiff was launched this afternoon. The as yet unnamed Skiff was launched this evening at Westhaven marina and quickly joined Wee Tawera for a light hearted race out onto the Waitamata harbour before returning to celebrate our success at Swashbucklers with a suitable cold beverage.

We were very honored to be joined this afternoon by Murdo MacLeod, a genuine Scottish St Ayles enthusiast visiting here on holiday. It was great to talk to Murdo about the latest trends in rowlocks and technique and favourite ales and other important topics!
