First shots from the Boat Building Academy spring student launch

These shots from from a wet, grey and blustery Boat Building Academy student launch at Lyme earlier this week. I gather it was a great day, with several past graduates joining in the fun with their own boats – and everyone tipped their hats to one of our student who despite the weather bravely launched his West Greenland kayak for the first time and managed to paddle a short distance across the harbour. It was built at the BBA during a 10-day short course in March this year.

Reports on the individual boats are to come, but photo-records of the builds can be seen here.
