Chesapeake Light Craft Offers June Classes in Sausalito

Build your own boat in a week at the Spaulding Wooden Boat Center

Annapolis, Maryland (I-Newswire) January 27, 2014 - Chesapeake Light Craft, the boat kit experts, will add build-your-own-boat classes at the Spaulding Wooden Boat Center in Sausalito, California, in June.

In CLC classes, talented professional instructors help students assemble their own boats from start to finish. Each class session starts on a Monday morning; by noon Saturday, participants head home with a completed boat ready for finish work.
Students in the Sausalito classes can select one of CLC's most popular small craft designs. The Northeaster Dory, scheduled for the week of June 9-14, can be fitted for rowing or sailing. It's a capacious, stable boat with a substantial payload for passengers or gear for camp-cruising and adventuring.

Enthusiast rowers should set aside the week of June 16-21 to build their own Annapolis Wherry. Students can choose between the 17'9" Annapolis Wherry and the 19'10" Annapolis Wherry Tandem. Both Wherries are exceptional rowing trainers, exercise boats, and open-water racers.

These two classes will be held at the Spaulding Wooden Boat Center, a 20,000 sq.ft. waterfront boatbuilding facility that houses historically significant sailboats, skilled craftspeople, educational programs and community events. They add to CLC's geographic range, which already includes classes in Annapolis, MD; Brooklin, ME; Cedarville, MI; and Port Townsend, WA.

CLC boatbuilding classes have launched more than a thousand wooden boats and introduced thousands of students to the joys of boatbuilding. CLC has been hosting and teaching build-your-own-boat classes since 1994.

CLC's precision-cut boat kits are intended for first-time boatbuilders working at home - more than 30,000 completed CLC boats are on the water - but a classroom setting has its advantages. Students work in a well-equipped shop with a professional boatbuilder at their side and enjoy the positive energy (and extra hands) of a group setting. Helpers are encouraged, and classes are a rewarding and memorable parent-child or family experience.

Those unfamiliar with modern wood-epoxy composite boatbuilding can watch examples of these week-long classes condensed into ninety-second timelapse videos at

Tuition for the week costs $850 and the boat kits range from $1395 to $1529. More information on Chesapeake Light Craft's Build-Your-Own Boat classes can be found at, or by calling 410-267-0317.
