Introduction to Boat Building

Ever wondered what thwarts or cold moulding are? This ‘boat building beginners’ course looks at how boats are shaped and why, terminology, construction methods, materials, propulsion, sails and rigs and rigging. This is a classroom based course, but workshop walkabouts and strolls to the harbour and Cornish Pilot Gig shed mean legs are regularly stretched.

6-7 January 2020

18-19 June 2020 (POSTPONED)

Course Fee: £280
