Boat Build & Sail

This foundational program engages youth in year-round apprenticeships in boat building, sail making (program year 2015-2016) and competitive sailing. Participants work with PWBF boat builders to master the tools, materials and techniques of traditional wooden boat building while being supported in developing and achieving their personal and educational goals.
