'Stan Brown, Organiser of the Jervis Bay Classic & Wooden Boat Festival has requested that the following information be circulated to members of the St Ayles Skiff Community. He says it would be a good opportunity to promote the St Ayles Skiff and explore the area for suitability for boating excursions.' 

Submissions are now open for a three day festival celebrating wooden, classic and model boats that will be held on November 10-12 at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum, Huskisson. This event will be an opportunity for the community to admire the beauty of timber vessels and the skills involved to craft them. 

The show will feature a display of handsome wooden and classic boats, including some built in the local area. Detailed boat models will be exhibited and radio controlled vessels will be setting sail in the pond on the Museum grounds. A range of historic surf boards and other antique nautical objects relating to early boat building will also be on display.
