This is the BBA’s invitation to its next launch extravaganza. As usual I can’t tear myself away from my desk of travail – because of the need to earn a living – but I’m sure it will be a great event, as always.
If you do go, please send photos you’d like to share to firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘Please join us for the next Boat Building Academy boat launch at 1200 on Wednesday 3 December. Boats will process from the school on Monmouth Beach to Lyme Regis harbour at 1130.
‘Mayor of Lyme Regis Sally Holman and Director of the Academy Tim Gedge will say a few words before the boats go into the water for the first time.
‘The boats include a traditional clinker Thames skiff, a stitch and glued outboard-powered Broome runabout, a glued clinker Beg Meil design gaff-rigged dinghy, and a glued clinker Fleet trow.
‘We will be delighted if you can join us to celebrate the students’ achievements at the end of the course and to wish them all the best in their new careers.’
