Skiffieworlds 2016

The next St Ayles Skiff World Championships will be held on 25-30 July 2016 in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland.  

Skiffieworlds will be a colourful and friendly celebration of coastal rowing, the St Ayles class has spread very quickly  with 130 boats across the world, and numbers growing all the time, we would love to see as many of these boats competing as possible.  Please see the contact details for the local Visitor Information Centres, who have been briefed about the event and will be able to help you book somewhere suitable for you to stay in the area that will be close to the launch venues and will accommodate your needs especially if you are travelling with a boat.  It is advisable to book ASAP as the area is a tourist destination and get booked up.

Who is going ?

Already several club members have booked accommodation.

It would be appreciated as and when members decide to go ,names are forwarded to one of the committee members , you may add name at any time,but as the event draws nearer July accommodation will become scarcer.

Early group bookings will have an advantage
