The Launch 2016
Just eight months ago the Class of February 2016 were 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 on their Class page and follow the progress of the boat builds here.
The boats will be led from the Boat Building Academy’s workshops on Monmouth Beach to the slipway at Lyme Regis Harbour. Champagne corks will pop and at 1200, 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. Whatever the weather, we hope you can join the celebrations.  At 1130 the boats will be led from the Academy’s workshops on Monmouth Beach to the slipway at Lyme Regis Harbour.
