Hi my name is Pip,
I'm a 13 year old boy who loves to go sailing, make things and draw. I live in Cambridge and go to a Steiner school. This year, in class 8, we do a project where we can make or set up pretty much anything we like. I chose to make a sailing dinghy; Since I was little I have been sailing with my dad on a javelin (a 16 foot sailing dinghy), so I have spent lots of my time on boats.
I'm planning to make it out of thin wooden planks covered in thin fibre glass that will seal, strengthen and make the wood shiny and beautiful. I'm going to base it on the old wooden merlin rocket designs. I will try to make it from scratch with a mentor to help and advise me.
I will be working on the weekends to earn some money for the boat materials, but £600 is a lot so please help me by donating. Thanks
