After the disruptions caused by Covid 19, Concord & Ryde Sailing Club will resume its winter boatbuilding programme on Saturday 6th May. The project invites high-school aged volunteers to join experienced craftsmen at the club’s premises on the Putney foreshore to build two International Moth class dinghies. Upon completion, the participants will then use the boats they have built to learn the basics of sailing. The programme is free. All tools and equipment are provided, including gloves, goggles and hearing protection.

Boat Frame

The Moth class has a history of over 90 years. In that time, designs have developed from low-cost small boats of modest performance into a range of exotic hydrofoiling designs which are among the fastest sail powered boats in existence. The design selected for the programme is called Imperium. This non-foiling “scow” design provides an excellent compromise between simplicity for new sailors and performance as the participants gain experience.  Prospective participants should complete the inquiry form on the club’s website selecitn the topic "Boat Building".
