We are really excited to invite 5 people to come and learn how to build a high specification Selway Fisher 15 foot Prospector Open Canadian Canoe from marine plywood strips, stiched and fibreglass reinforced.
The team will build the canoe from a full size set of plans. The 15' 8" Fisher Prospector is their most popular canoe design. This new version has been requested to offer a slightly shorter canoe, but with 7 planks per side rather than the 5 of the original design.
It a high capacity canoe suitable for 2 to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children, stable yet fast, good tracking and manouverable!
This will be a hands on learning as we go along, led by two skilled craftspeople.
This team will then support a younger team (16 to 18 year olds) to build the 2nd Canoe. We could support further canoes to be built in Cardished, materials would have to be paid for.
Both will be launched onto the River Teifi at a special event, with other kayaks and canoes in early September 2021.
The £600 cost for the materials for each canoe has been donated by the Spirit of Sulien Trust - thank you!! The first canoe will be named Spirit of Sulien and the second canoe Sunshine Sulien in memory of boy who died, who loved kayaking!!
Workshop 1: cost £20 per adult to fund purchase of paddles
