We are delighted to say that our skiff, Findlay Macdonald, participated in the St Ayles Skiffs world championships, SkiffieWorlds, which took place in Kortgene in the Netherlands from 25 June to 2 July. Our boat and local crew acquitted itself very well, particularly as this was a first visit to this brilliant event.

The small crew from Faversham were joined by a team from Cromarty and various other scratch teams to put the Findlay Macdonald through its paces. Many admiring comments were made about the quality of the workmanship on the boat, which was even used by a team in the Women’s 50+ World Championships Final by the brilliant team from Cromarty (pictured below).

Check out the Findlay Macdonald in action – can you hear the crowd shouting ‘Faversham’? What an absolutely brilliant event! We are so proud to have been there with our beautiful skiff representing our town.
