Boat Camp

For three years, 2017 – 2019, we ran our BoatCamp programme in which, under the instruction of one of our Purifier licensees, Alan Thorne, two teams of four young students from the Abbey School each spent their summer activity week building a sixteen foot rowing skiff (a “Julie”, designed by Gavin Atkin) in our Purifier Building.  In addition two students undertook work experience at Alan Staley’s Shipyard and the entire cohort of young students was treated to a day out on the Swale on Thames Sailing Barge Repertor.
