Skol ar Mor – a new boat building school in the Loire-Atlantique

This photo shows their first student launch day of a new international boat building school at Mesquer in the Loire-Atlantique department of France – François Vivier told us last year that it was being established and that he was associated with it.

Skol ar Mor is led by a boat builder from the USA, Mike Newmeyer, and recently celebrated the opening of its premises, a restored salt warehouse.

Read all about it at François’ weblog Boats to make the sea more beautiful – the relevant posts are here and here.

By the way, the sweet little grey skiff in the photo is a Vivier design – the Charlotte skiff.
