Celebrating Youth-Built Boat Launches

"Just Get Out In The Boat"

Compass Project LaunchingThe happy crew of South Portland High School boat builders!
This spring the Compass Project celebrated a lot of hard work put in by kids in the Portland area, work that allowed students to create floating, useful works of art. Whether they created a 17', twin-sail craft or a rowing dinghy, these young people proved that they can work together to build something to last. Here are a few shots from our launches over the past few weeks.
