Traditional Maritime Skills

Traditional Maritime Skills

The Traditional Maritime Skills Project was developed in response to threats to marine development, including diminishing skills in traditional boat building, in the 2 Seas Area (covering the English Channel and North Sea).

The cross-border cooperation created a commitment by all partners to preserving traditional boat building skills in the four countries of the 2 Seas area for the long-term. Together, they collected and recorded these skills, promoted their use in traditional and modern boat building and increased the number of people pursuing education and a career in boat building.

Through the project, CMN created a training programme on traditional boat and ship building skills to develop multi skilled boat building professionals, developed promotional material for educational organisations, and built an online virtual learning environment with a bank of interactive resources.
