Week Nineteen – Tuesday

All done! It’s been an incredible five months. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the building experience and the camaraderie of this project. From new skills to working together as a team we all gained something in the process. Now it’s on to the next phase, learning to row this beautiful craft.
