History of Rowing at Broughty Ferry
In the 1950’s Broughty Ferry Boating was a vibrant rowing club on the Tay and with the interest generated with the formation of the SCRA, the Royal Tay Yacht Club have recently resurrected the famous name as part of its commitment to the upsurge in coastal rowing across the country and beyond.
The Scottish Coastal Rowing Association was formed in 2010 to encourage boat building, rowing and racing of coastal rowing boats around the Scottish Coastline.
Our first Skiff “Brochty” was built in the Spring and Summer of 2014 and launched on 31/8/14 our second skiff “Arthur Nicoll” was built in the Winter and Spring of 2015 and launched on 19/4/15.
With two beautifully hand crafted Skiffs available our membership has grown steadily.
