Here we go!

Well here we are, it’s been a long time coming. But now, thanks to a lot of help and support from a wide range of funders especially the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland we are just about ready to get going with Anchor and Sail!

Over the next few years we’ll be building lots of boats and teaching hundreds of people traditional boatbuilding skills across two workshops. Here is just one of the boats we’re going to build:

It’s a Captain’s Gig designed by Paul Gartside to historically accurate dimensions identified by volunteers at the Tall Ship. We won’t be starting this one for a good while, but in the mean time we’ll have lots to keep us busy.

On this blog we’re going to keep up to date with our activity, post photos and small articles. Some posts will be from myself, Ben Duffin as Lead Boatbuilder, but we’ll also be getting participants and apprentices to write about their involvement and inviting members of the public to contribute as well. We’ll be using this to advertise public events as they happen and anything else of interest too. There will be a lot going on, so keep a weather eye on Anchor and Sail!

    When someone writes an post he/she retains the image of a user in his/her mind that how
    a user can understand it. So that’s why this article is amazing.
    Thanks!
