The Apprenticeshop will offer a Youth Boatbuilding Workshop this spring over April vacation (M-F, April 18 – 22) from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. for students sixth grade through high school. While building wooden Optimist dinghies, students will learn basic boatbuilding skills, woodworking techniques, and an intro to basic seamanship and sailing nomenclature. Participants will work in a group led by volunteers and experienced boatbuilders from The Apprenticeshop community.

The Community Sailing program uses these Optimist dinghies to teach seamanship and sailing to beginner and intermediate sailors from May through October. Workshop participants are encouraged to sail with the Community Sailing Program in 2016, enjoying a 5% discount on any summer class. Build it and sail it!

Cost for the one-week program is $200. Class size is limited and interested participants are encouraged to register early. To enroll for the Youth Boatbuilding Workshop online, visit apprenticeshop.org/enroll-online/build-an-optimist, or call 207-594-1800.

The Apprenticeshop is a center for traditional wooden boatbuilding, sailing and seamanship located at 655 Main Street in Rockland’s North End.  FMI: 207-594-1800 or Apprenticeshop.org.
