Skiffies on Strangford Lough

Images from The Skiffie World Festival held in July 2017 and set against the dramatic scenery of Strangford Lough. Skiffs are traditionally-styled, colourful rowing boats, crafted by the rowing teams to reflect their own area.

County Down has become a centre for coastal rowing with seven clubs established along the coast from Donaghadee to Dundrum.
