I tried to get an apprenticeship in boatbuilding straight from school but I couldn’t get one as I didn’t have any experience. The boatbuilding course at Falmouth Marine School changed all of that.
I now have skills and have secured an apprenticeship with Pendennis.
I love the practical nature of the course and the opportunity to work on some fantastic projects. My favourite was the restoration of a 40 year old Cornish rowing association skiff.
