We often talk about the 114 year history of the Skiff Club and members would have seen the many historic pictures on display at the club. Now a film from the National Film and Sound Archive (NSFA) has come to light which tells the story of how two young local boys come to the Skiff Club and discover the joy of sailing. It is a great piece of our history showing the Club and the local area as it was in the late 1950’s. Take a look and enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4Wv9W3CqD0
This film is especially poignant to those of us who have been actively fighting to protect this history in the face of a marina development that would threaten our ability to continue sailing from the beach at the Spit!
