Tidewater Wooden Boat Workshop teaches Hampton Roads youth STEM and life skills through the building of wooden boats and other nautical activities.
TWBW is once again teaming with Sail Nauticus Academy during the winter with 15 of their eighth grade sailing students attending weekly boatbuilding sessions at our shop. However, due to the pandemic, instead of working together on full-size boats each student is building a radio controlled model sailboat. The boat is a scale model of the 12-foot Bevin's Skiff rowboats our students have built in the past. Unlike the full-size version, the models will have a full deck and be rigged with a sail, rudder and electronic components to sail them using a radio controller When construction is completed, the students will get to sail the boats they built. Check out the photos below and see the progress our young boatbuilders are making on their models.
Your support and contributions will enable us to reach more disadvantaged youth in the Hampton Roads area.
