New courses at National Maritime Museum Cornwall in association with the Boat Building Academy
The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is launching a new series of courses in partnership with the Boat Building Academy, Lyme Regis.
The first weekend course at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth runs over Saturday March 30 and Sunday March 31. Roy Gollop, visiting instructor at the Boat Building Academy will teach decorative ropework and splicing.
Mr Golllop began his marine career in 1946 as an apprentice boat builder, before enlisting in the Royal Marines, where he was responsible first for landing craft operations before becoming senior instructor of seamanship. He returned to Lyme Regis and managed the family fishing business for several years until starting to build clinker dinghies and working boats for local people.
Yvonne Green, principal of the Boat Building Academy, said: "We are delighted to be working with the Maritime Museum and a course run by Roy is a terrific way to start.

"He is such a great representative for both the Academy and Lyme Regis in Falmouth. The courses at the Museum give us the opportunity to run short, highly practical workshops at a weekend, which we don't have space to do on Monmouth Beach.
"The Museum is also a wonderful place to work for anyone with an interest in maritime activities."
The two day 'Make a Fender' course at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth costs £200.
