Boatbuilding and Systems Training (and more!) at the IYRS Open House

We love boatbuilding, Beetle Cats, craftspeople and any version of this story where they all meet up. Having the International Yacht Restoration School down the Bay from us in Newport, is quite a boon for the local marine trades around the bustling boating towns and sheds around Rhode Island and New England.  IYRS has fed quite a few talented boatbuilders, composite technicians and systems engineers into the marine trades, and they continue to offer courses that appeal to all ages, all skill sets and all ambitions. Do you have ambitions to learn about boatbuilding and marine systems? If so, read on! The IYRS Open House is right around the corner. 

Are you ready to explore hands-on experiential education & training in advanced manufacturing, design & fabrication, woodworking, composite & carbon fiber fabrication or systems maintenance? Are you a maker, thinker, designer, innovator, or dreamer who would rather make it, than buy it?
