Classic Boat Awards – Mike Ludgrove Helena – Classic Boat – March 2020

For the second year running, The Boat Building Academy are proud sponsors of the Classic Boat Awards.

This year, graduate Mike Ludgrove’s 64ft LOA Bermudan Cutter Helena has been nominated for the ‘Traditional New Build’ category.

Mike trained at the Academy in 2001 and spent 12 years building Helena from scratch. To fund the project, Mike sold his flat and his business, and later led a successful crowdfunding campaign to finish the build.

Helena was first launched in 2018 and is now chartered across the Mediterranean.
