One Sheet Skiff Project
We are really looking forward to the Tall Ships Races coming back to Hartlepool in 2023.
Hartlepool is a town with a long and proud association with the sea, and we want everyone to have the opportunity to design, build and race a boat as part of the Tall Ships Races 2023.
There will be several ways of getting involved:
You could build your own boat
You could design, paint and decorate a boat we have built
You can race a boat (one you have built, or one of ours!)
One Sheet Skiffs are quite easy to build.
One sheet of 8x4 ply
A little bit of timber, screws, wood glue
Paint and Yacht Varnish
How creative can you be?
The Skiffs are a standard size and composition, but there is a lot of scope for being creative with how they look.
Take a look at the 'OSS, class of 2010' video for some inspiration
We will arrange a series of trials and fun races in the Marina on the build up and as part of the Tall Ships races 2023.
