Our Sheltie Skiff is a lovely little boat with lots of local history.  It has lines that remind us of a viking boat.

 

For people who were at school in the 60's and 70's you might recognise this little boat.  It was used by Red House Comprehensive as a training boat for pupils on the" nautical studies" course.  A course designed for pupils going into the shipyards.

 

It is in line for full restoration when we have finished the Willdora.

 

We plan to get her sailing back on the river, providing sail and boat handling training to our community.
