Boat Launch Day
12th June, 10.00am
A whole range of boats, from traditional clinkers to rowing wherries, are built as part of the intensive and practical training at the Boat Building Academy on Monmouth Beach. At the end of each course, the boats built (often as many as 9-10) are walked in procession down to the sea and launched with due ceremony into Lyme Regis harbour. Friends, relatives, students, staff and the town gather at the water’s edge to cheer as each boat, testament to the skill of the students, is launched for the first time. It is a joyful and inspiring celebration of the end of the course and the beginning of each student’s new life as a qualified boat builder. Everyone is welcome to join us at the harbour and see the range and quality of the boats for themselves. Launches occur every June and December.
