Boat Building Academy Boat Launch 
  Just eight months ago this Class  was learning how to sharpen chisels and make dovetail joints.  Now they’re making boats as part of their training
on our intensive 38 week ‘Boat Building, Maintenance and Support’ course.  You can read what brought each student to the Academy and follow the progress of the boat builds at www.boatbuildingacademy.com.

The boats will be led from the Academy’s workshops on Monmouth Beach to Lyme Regis Harbour. Champagne corks will pop  and each boat will be launched into the water for the first time. The launch will celebrate the achievements of the class, the end of their training at the Academy and the start of their new lives as boat builders. the slipway  - This is an approximate time due to the scale of the event.  more info.. see right

Boat Building Academy
student boat launch Lyme Regis Harbour


The end of the 38 week Boat Building Course. Students will walk their boats down to Lyme Regis harbour where they will be launched for the first time. The class have completed their training and the day marks the start of their lives as boat builders.

Yvonne Green, Principal of the Academy, says, ‘I’m confident that the students wishing to work in the marine industry will easily find employment. We have an excellent relationship with employers and students join our growing Graduates’ Network which is regularly updated with jobs and opportunities. There is a skills shortage in boat building, which is a thriving industry’.

After a few words from Commander Tim Gedge, a Director of the Academy, the boats will launch one by one into the water. The Academy would be delighted if you would like to join them to celebrate the achievements of the students

Read about where Academy Graduates go on to work, their profiles, photographic build diaries and Graduate case studies, see the Academy’s website at:   www.boatbuildingacademy.com



Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!
