At our Zoom Club Night on Wednesday 22 September we watched a presentation by Jane Howard and Lindy Marlow, from Coastal Rowing Williamstown (CReW), on the build of their St Ayles Skiff.
The St Ayles Skiff movement is now well established across the globe, and aims to encourage community participation in a practical boatbuilding project. More than 20 of these beautiful Iain Oughtred-designed skiffs have been built by various community groups around Australia.
Jane and Lindy's presentation covered the inception, build and launch in 2019 of their skiff Thursday at Williamstown by this group of enthusiastic but inexperienced boatbuilding women, and their plans for the future. After their presentation there was an opportunity for questions from the audience (not included in this recording).
