Skiff rowing

We have a St. Ayles skiff, named Greg Lockhurst with the number 218.

Last November, Greg Luckhurst’s family led the launch of the traditional rowing boat built in a joint project involving Forfar Rotary Club, the sailing club and the town’s Men’s Shed.

Greg died in 2021 at the age of 45.

His family donated the money for the St Ayles skiff kit and volunteers dedicated more than 1,500 hours to the 10-month build.

The Earl of Forfar even had a hand in the boat-building project last year.

He placed the four-man skiff’s serial number in the hull during a visit to the town in June.
