The Jubilee

The Jubilee heads out to sea from Stornoway, which is the main town in the Hebrides.

The boat is a Sgoth, a traditional wooden fishing boat that was widely used at the turn of the last century in Lewis.

The tradition of building and sailing these boats was almost lost. But recently there has been a revival in interest.
