Spokesman David Fraser said the Crabbers wwere looking forward to the exciting challenge of the inaugural St Ayles Skiff World Championships, being held in Ullapool in July.
Mr Fraser added: ”During the winter, the Crail Crabbers are keeping in shape with gym training and the occasional row, weather permitting.
