THE EFFORTS of the Stornoway Rowing Club and community in building the islands’ first community skiff are set to feature in a Trusadh documentary ‘Ag iomradh ‘s a’ tarring – Coastal Rowing’ aired next week.

The programme takes a look at the resurgence in coastal rowing throughout Scotland, and follows one of the latest groups to get involved in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, on their journey from fund-raising, to building, to rowing as they join the coastal rowing ranks with community skiff ‘Madadh Ruadh’.

A Mactv production, ‘Ag iomradh ‘s a’ tarring – Coastal Rowing’ will be shown on BBC ALBA on Monday, May 7th at 9pm and repeated on Tuesday, May 8th at 10pm.
