Maintaining the skiffs and equipment requires continuous time, effort and organisation.

To avoid responsibility falling on a single person we have set up a Core Maintenance Team to triage the damage reports and decide what needs to be done, how urgently and by whom.  

The Core Team also monitors the condition of our equipment and schedules maintenance tasks. 

A Maintenance Audit was carried in in August 2021 which highlights a number of tasks to be addressed.

In addition we have maintained a log of skiff maintenance since 2016.

Membership of Core Maintenance Team

Any member may join. Ideally it should be composed of: 

  • Members with knowledge of and skills in woodworking and skiff maintenance 
  • Not-so-skilled members who can help organise and schedule  

To join the core maintenance team please email

You can leave at any time. The most important thing is to have a group of members willing and able to keep the club afloat.

How does it work?
