What is Rocking the Boat?

Rocking the Boat is an inter-generational boat building project which brings together small groups, spanning all ages to work closely with our friendly, highly skilled experts to build two boats from scratch!

Do I need experience in carpentry and how much does it cost?

No experience is required and it’s completely FREE of charge.

Will I get the chance to try other activities as well as boat building during the project?

Yes!  The sessions are split in half, half the day spent working on the boat build, and the other half doing whichever watersports activity takes your fancy.

When do the sessions take place?
