Arran Coastal Rowing Club was founded in early 2015 and is based at Arran Yacht Club in Lamlash. Iolair, Arran's first skiff (small boat which can be rowed by four people) was named and launched on Saturday, 19th September 2015 at the yacht club in Lamlash. The second one “Seabhag” (built on behalf of and financed by Arran Junior Sailing Club) was launched on 17th September 2016. Both skiffs are available for joint activities. ACRC is a member of the Scottish Coastal Rowing Association.

Coastal rowing is a very accessible sport. You do not need huge resources or specialist knowledge to become involved. All the rowers have a contribution to make to the forward movement of the boat, and all share the same rewards. It is exhilarating, enjoyable and gently challenging.

What is a skiff?

The St Ayles Skiff is 22ft, with a beam of 5’8″. The standard crew is four rowers, each with a single oar, and a coxswain. The name of the design comes from the former chapel which now forms the entrance to the Scottish Fisheries Museum.

It's fun, satisfying, you meet new people and have a sense of teamwork. And.. get fit without even noticing it. What more could you want?

Coastal rowing

Skiff rowing is becoming ever more popular in coastal towns and villages around Scotland with over 160 skiffs to date and regattas (rowing competitions) are held throughout the summer. If you would like to know more about skiffs then have a look at our info page, or there's more information on the Scottish Coastal Rowing Association's website.

A big thank you!

We would like to thank the following people for their kind support and tireless efforts, and without whom this project would never have got off the ground: Rory Cowan, Steve Garraway and the pupils of Arran High School for the hundreds of hours they have spent on the build, Angus Campbell for coming up with the idea in the first place, liaising with Arran Yacht Club and for lending us the money to finance the first skiff, Geoff Norris for, among many other things, his patience and persistence with grant applications, Barry Smith for allowing us to build at the High School and Dave Ingham for taking some excellent photos of the boat. And last but not least all the other rowing clubs who gave us advice and tips - very much appreciated. We look forward to meeting you soon on the water :-)

We would also like to say a very big thank you to our generous sponsors and supporters: Arran Trust, Arran Yacht Club and RNLI. Thank you to Arran Deliveries, Arran Distillery and the Coop Lamlash for supporting our first rowing regatta here on Arran. In addition we are very grateful for the recent donation we received from the Isle of Arran Rotary Club towards a new set of oars. Also to Amy and Euan from THE DRIFT INN a heartfelt thank you for generously sponsoring our new set of racing oars.
