St Ives Jumbo Association

A community-based charity project to pass on and demonstrate the seamanship skills used by fishermen of Cornwall, by building and using a traditional fishing vessel only found in St Ives Cornwall. The skills demonstrated are knot tying, ‘Lug rig’ sailing and single oared rowing, known in St Ives as ‘Sculling’.

Basic membership is £30 per year. This allows you to sail as frequently as can be arranged.
Alternatively, for £230, you can buy a ‘Share’ in the building costs of the ‘William Paynter’.
Other events like the ‘Scully day’ or knot tying evenings require a small donation.
There is also a range of Jumbo t-shirts, smocks, postcards etc. available.
