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!)

Nautical Rope


One Sheet Skiffs are quite easy to build. 


  • One sheet of 8x4 ply

  • A little bit of timber, screws, wood glue

  • Caulking

  • 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 

Friends Rowing a Boat


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.
