Andres writes:We are putting the finishing touches on the boat tonight, the “Ice Breaker” (see email below regarding the stories and the name), and we aim to take her to the sea at high tide tomorrow Tuesday 25 May (13:30hrs). Anyone that can help tomorrow from mid day to take the boat out of the workshop and down to the water would be welcome. Come to the workshop at noon-ish. There will be no big ceremony as this will be on July 24th, when we host the Portobello Regatta, when we expect to have many of the skiffs built last winter to come to race at Porty. I am trying to tie up something with the school to get the kids that wrote the stories to come down to the beach and we can do a wee naming ceremony this week straight after school. For all those keen to go to Anstruther on Sat (29th May) please come and have a practice run so we can all find our favorite positions on the boat. We will have her out every day (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) of this week from around 4pm until we are done in.
Look forward to see many of you on Ice Breaker over the next few evenings, rain or shine.
