The Wooden Boat Gathering is returning to the Windermere Jetty Museum this June

Assembling skilled professionals and enthusiasts in the wooden boatbuilding scene for a weekend of talks, tours, boating and socialising. The event, organised by the Wooden Boatbuilders Trade Association, will be dedicated in memory of Iain Oughtred, an inspirational figure in the world of small wooden boat design, who sadly passed away in February.

With a varied programme of talks from wooden boat builders, nautical artists, authors and forest scientists, there will also be many beautiful wooden boats to admire on the jetty and guided tours of the award winning Windermere Jetty Museum. A delicious buffet meal on the Saturday evening will be a great opportunity to engage with the boatbuilding community in a perfect setting. The event welcomes boat builders, restorers, makers, designers, photographers, sailors and adventurers, as well as anyone curious to discover more about the world of wooden boats.
