WITH YOUR OWN HANDS The way is the goal of the boat building course, in which participants build their own boat under supervision, e.g. at the boat building school in Peenemünde. Dinghies and Optis are in the range, but above all kayaks made of plywood. A course lasts one to two weeks and costs from 1500 euros. If that is too much for you, you can also participate in part of the course fees with a voucher
