Schools Program

Over many years the Living Boat Trust, in cooperation with local schools, has run a program to introduce students to basic boating skills. This has included

  • preparation and planning
  • rigging
  • ropework
  • rowing techniques
  • sailing techniques and manoeuvres
  • rescue procedures and drills
  • launching and docking
  • sailing theory and background
  • observing and understanding winds, tides and currents.

We plan to continue this program into the future.  If your school wishes to be involved please contact the LBT secretary:
