In just three weeks, learn how to make a small boat of your own design and creation with your bare hands. This skill-intense adventure begins with a 10-day live-aboard sailing voyage from Grenada to the sailor’s paradise of Bequia. We lay the foundation with an exploration into the physics, engineering and design principles involved in boat construction. As we pass hundreds of boats at sea and even more docked in marina after marina, we are filled with inspiration and ideas.
