Ullapool St Ayles Skiff, has started winning. The first triumph was at the Dorna Sail and Oar on the Clyde at the weekend, when Ulla beat rivals Port Seton. The secret seems to be a combination of practice, physical fitness and replacing the steering oar with a more conventional rudder moved by a yoke and lines.
The picture, by Chris Perkins, shows the new arrangement plus the now-unused 'wart' for the steerboard.
Congratulations, Ulla, and keep up the training!
