On Monday the 7th May the Boat Project Boat (yet to be named) will be launched to set sail on her maiden voyage.
|The Boat outside the Boat Shed for her Press Launch|
A 30ft Day Sailer designed by Simon Rogers looks like a completely normal boat on paper, but in real life she is different to any vessel previously built. The reason she is unique is because she has been created from 1000’s of pieces of wood donated from all over the world. But these weren't just any pieces of wood - each piece has an unforgettable story or a fond memory behind it. From a shaving of Jimi Hendrix’s guitar to a child’s first wooden train set, each item has been carefully placed to create this fantastic vessel.
For the past year the boat shed has been a hive of activity with momentous occasions taking place, and on Monday the 7th of May the boat will be launched in to Thornham’s deep water pool.
100’s of people from all over the south coast will be arriving at the marina on this day to watch their memory float for the very first time.
The launch itself will start from 1pm with Live Music, Food, Drinks and Celebrations plus special guests (yet to be revealed)!

We hope to see you for this spectacular event!
