Boat builder launches marine scheme.

MARINE students at Coleg Llandrillo met with a boat building entrepreneur as part of the launch of a new initiative between the North Wales college and Bridge Marine Science Group.

The initiative sees Anglesey-based marine cluster organisation, Bridge Marine Science Group (BMSG) team up with Llandrillo to help marine students gain practical experience of the marine industry.

Both first and second year pupils studying City and Guilds in Boat Building and Repair were invited to hear what support they will be given by BMSG as well as having the opportunity to talk with Dave Young, 23, owner of Sunshine Marine and BMSG cluster member.

Dave also brought along one of the boats built at his workshop in Anglesey, and encouraged the students to explore the possibilities of setting up their own business.

Jason Priest, Business Development Manger of Bridge Marine Science, said: "Coleg Llandrillo's new Marine and Built Environment Centre is a testament to how both the college and BMSG see the sector developing in the future."
