Young Shipwright's Boat Race

This event always creates an incredible scene with hundreds of children exploring the long tradition of boat building on the Harbour before creating their own models of the Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter to race.

The project is supported by the Festival and local businesses who fund the workshops for schools and send volunteers to work with teams of children.

Over the past eight years some 7,000 children have taken part in the boat building and racing.
