Build a Sail Boat with Your Family in 3 Days In May

UNH Family Boat Building Program 12-ft "Oyster Cats"
Friday, May 16, 2014 to Sunday, May 18, 2014

Do you love spending time on the water? Are you looking for a weekend activity that will bring your family closer together?

During the weekend of May 16-18, your family can build the “Oyster Cat” 12-foot sailboat and make memories for a lifetime.

This program, sponsored by the UNH Marine Docents, gives each family the joy of completing a complex task together and a means of enjoying our water resources. We guarantee a 100% success rate.

Eligible families must include one or two adults and at least one child age 12 to 20. No prior woodworking experience beyond basic skills using hand tools required. An experienced docent boat builder will assist each family. Single parents and extended families are welcome to participate.

The $1500 program fee includes all boat-building materials, a professionally made sail, and instruction. We’ll even teach you how to sail your new boat. Space is limited. Interested families must submit an application by March 30.

Apply today and spend the summer sailing with your family.

Kingman Farm, Durham NH
