We are a friendly community club based in Amble, Northumberland. Our aim is to build our own St Ayles Skiffs and then use them as a basis for coastal rowing activities. To row the boats we built ourselves, for pleasure, fitness, social events or just for the sheer fun of it.
Anyone is welcome to join the club. People of any age, gender or fitness level, absolutely no experience necessary. Like the 100 or so communities throughout the UK who have build skiffs we have members rainging in age between 14 to well through their 70's, with as many women taking part as men. People who have not so much as touched a chisel or set out on the water before in their lives have come together to build these beautiful boats and crew them like salty seadogs. The sense of community spirit and the support of those more experienced members, giving them the confidence to try something new.
Do you want to join in? Don't be shy, come along for a few taster sessions, no commitment. Or if you would just like to ask some questions first, please drop us an email and we will do our best to answer them for you
