Build your own Boat
Two boat builders, Yair Lichtenstein and Rik van der Vaart, will be demonstrating boat building during the upcoming International Sailing Regatta, which is held at Surfside Beach on August 10 and 11. The result of their joint effort, which can be either rowed or motored with a small outboard, will be sold during the prize-giving ceremony of the event and net proceeds will go to the sailing school for kids (SYWA). With their unique action, the two boat builders hope to show that a lovely wooden vessel can be built in relatively little time and with not much expertise. The design of the boat is a John Welsford Seagull; the boat can easily hold three people and glides through the water with ease. The wood needed to build the Seagull is entirely sponsored by Kooyman, in support of the International Sailing Regatta. The boat will be sold unpainted, so that the new owner can decide on its color and finishing touches in close cooperation with Rik and Yair.
