Once again, we’re invited to celebrate with the Boat Building Academy class of September 2012 as they gather at Lyme Regis harbour to launch boats built as part of their 38-week boat building course.

The boats include a Whitehall rowing skiff, a Red bird canoe and a traditional clinker-built replica of the Morgan Giles’ Pip-Emma dinghy currently housed at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth.

The boats will be ceremonially walked in procession from the Academy to the harbour, and after a few words from BBA director Commander Tim Gedge and town mayor Sally Holman, they will each be launched to cheers from the crowd and the popping of champagne corks.
