Classic Boat Magazine, which is usually several levels upmarket of where Skiffing probably lies, run a series of awards at the end of each year. This year some kind soul has nominated the St Ayles Skiff in the ‘Spirit of Tradition – less than 40′” category.

So Skiffies, you now have an opportunity to express your view of the outstanding little craft that Iain O and Alec J have conjured up for all to play with. Just visit  the Classic Boat awards 2014 web page and register your vote, if all involved in Skiffiedom act in concert it should be a walkover ;-). You are looking for Category 4.

The January 2014 issue, which has just dropped through the letterbox, has a brief write up on p36  with a cracking snap from the Ullapool 2012 Regatta – possibly taken by Ullapool’s own John Britten. Compare the image above by John with the mag. It would have been nice to see the Photographer credited.
Unfortunately the proof reader was having an off day – a draught of 5’10” would make Portys Surf exploits somewhat improbable.

    Done! Nice to see that Saskia, the Oban Skiff and Fiona and Ali Houston have also made it to the lists. Good that Classic Boat is becoming aware that good things don’t always happen around the South East.

    South East of France? That seems to be where they spend most of their time in unattainable superyachts.
