BBA student launch, December 2012
This is photographic evidence that this year’s winter student launch at the Boat Building Academy really did manage to take place in decent bright, if chilly, weather despite the variable autumn we’ve had.
Apart from the students and staff, the shots show the launch of an Iain Oughtred-designed Fulmar named Florence after the builder’s daughter born a week ago and also a Humble Bee pram dinghy also designed by Oughtred.
Eight boats built by the class of March 2012 hit the water, and details of the boats and the students who built them are here, and there are more photos here.
The BBC and ITV were in attendance, and their reports are here (the launch report starts about 21 minutes in) and here.
