Boat Building Courses

The main workshop is currently being completely fitted out to comply with Health and Safety requirements.

 

The students are occupied in the outside areas of West Yard developing skills involved in Wood/Metal/Fibreglass/Paintspraying. This is enabling them to be hands-on in renovating and repairing workbenches and shelving for the main workshop. This skills development will equip them to participate in boatbuilding and repairs, thus becoming truly self-sufficient sailors. The students will also be better equipped for post-school employment or self-employment across many fields of maintenance and production.

Our senior sailing student, Howard Leoto, is currently studying Boat Building at False Bay College. It is hoped that sponsorships will eventually enable more of our students to continue their studies via similar courses in the future.
