Rocking the Boat – 8 week boat building course

We are working with "All Aboard" and others to provide this brilliant opportunity. If you are 50+ or 16-25 and live in Bristol, you can apply for Rocking the Boat, an intergenerational boat building project in small groups of 6 to 8 people to work closely with our friendly, highly skilled experts to build two brand new boats from scratch. The project culminates with the vessel’s maiden voyage on the historic Bristol Harbour

50+? You will take part in an 8 week programme, the first 2 weeks of which are skills builder sessions where you will start building your boat. In the 3rd week, you will be joined by our 16-25 year olds.

16 – 25? Your programme will last 6 weeks, joining our older generation in their third week, you will build your boats together.

Free to attend but you must be living in the city of Bristol. No experience is required. Courses run every Thursday, 10.30AM – 3.30PM. for 8 weeks at All-Aboard Watersports, Cumberland Road, Bristol, BS1 6XG. We can help with transport.
