Vote for a name for the skiff

We’ve drawn up a shortlist of ten names  from suggestions  made by the school, by shareholders and by members of the building team. The names are going to be published in this month’s Seilachan.

( Some Gaelic translations: Sguman = skimmer        Mara  =  sea        Siaban = sea-spray, spray,  spume, spindrift )

There are two  polls, for first choice and second choice. In the event of a tie second choices will be taken into account.

The poll closes on the 28th of February.

    Too close to call. I reckon you are going to have to build a second skiff to keep everyone happy.
