BEING A BOATBUILDING STUDENT
At Falmouth Marine School we believe the best way to learn boatbuilding techniques is to undertake real hands-on experience. The majority of our boatbuilding programmes and assessments are carried out in a practical way.
Our Boatbuilding students often have the opportunity to test their skills and craftsmanship on something other than boats. A few years back students on the Traditional Boatbuilding course built two brand new sweep oars for the Mount's Bay Lugger Association, as a thank you for all the help they received over the one-year course.
The laid back beach lifestyle of living in Cornwall is first choice for many students. If you want to get some extra practice during your course or just fancy some time on the water there are a variety of clubs and discount offers available to all students. Have a look at Student Activities.
