Visit to Norwegian Boatbuilding Museum
Hardanger Fartoyvernsenter, a living boatbuilding museum in Norway, for two weeks. It was a Leonardo mobility work placement organised by the Crafts Council of Ireland. During her visit, she had the opportunity to work with ropemakers, shipbuilders, boatbuilders and youth workers. She will be giving a slideshow and talk about this amazing experience at Meitheal Mara at 12:30pm on February 24th.
Notice the beautiful new rudder we built for her in the foreground.
Hopefully we'll see her at the Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival ( 27th - 29th of May). There will be at least five "ettes " participating in this event. For more news and updates on events in the sailing season see "Sailing The Ettes" on facebook.
