Say “St AylesSkiff” and the Huon Valley is starting to see double! Cygnettownship proudly launched Tasmanian St Ayles Skiff Number 2 at a veryspecial ceremony on March 1st at the CygnetSailing and Yacht Club.

On behalf of the “Womenon Water” Franklin-based group it was a pleasure to be “specialinvitees”. All who attended were impressed with the workmanship inthe skiff’s sleek design, paint and special finishing touches. The“Cygnet” skiff was named “The Swan”. The townships gatheredto share the community spirit and pride in being part of the project.It was an obvious demonstration of the success of a health andwell-being grant administered by the Huon Valley Health ServicesAdvisory Committee.

The launch was aprelude to the Cygnet Yacht Club’s 150th celebration and an inauguralSt Ayles Skiff event for the Cygnet Regatta was a great way toreinforce the benefits of being involved. The weather conditions wereperfect, many skiff crews were involved, there was friendly rivalryand camaraderie with both St Ayles Skiffs, “Imagine” and “TheSwan” gliding through the water, side by side.
