The Viking Boat - Double ended clinker sailing dinghy with Pete Laidlaw

Students will construct an 18' double ended clinker rowing and sailing dinghy to a traditional Viking design.  This will be made of rare Tasmanian boatbuilding timbers, predominately Huon Pine.  This is a rare opportunity for students to be part of a traditional Viking boat build.

Course duration: Eight weeks or week blocks during the course

Tuition fees: $4,800 for eight weeks or $600 per week

The boat build is being sponsored by a Sydney based Viking boat enthusiast.  It will also feature carved features - dragons head and tail and shields (these carved elements will be outsourced, not made by the students).
