Cremyll Maritime Training

The Cremyll Maritime Training is a project that builds on the strength of Lynher CIC’s experience in conserving historic vessels and transmitting the skills required to do so to the Rame Peninsula’s community and beyond.

Based in the 1899 “Impregnable Drill Shed” in Cremyll (aka the “Gymnasium”) Cremyll Maritime Training delivers vocational training in traditional boatbuilding and seamanship skills, as well as providing support to local maritime projects through its role as one of the Shipshape Hub South West, part of National Historic Ships UK.

Learn With Us

We believe that every child or adult has the potential to achieve anything she or he wishes to, the secret is believing in oneself. It is very important to expose children, young people and adults from all walks of life to practical skills and outdoor water-based adventures in order to support their personal development and instil a feeling of growing confidence and self esteem. Our range of vocational, practical and shore based courses are designed to do just that!

Our Maritime Community

The Rame Peninsula is a special place to live in, it boasts some rare nature and wildlife which thrives only in this unique habitat’s biodiversity. The people who live here are, too, unique individuals who form an outstanding community made out of artists, sailors, boatbuilders and much more talent. At Cremyll we aim to offer a conduit for our community to explore its identity whilst discovering and connecting with the local maritime heritage.

Volunteer with us



Engage with our team of friendly instructors and volunteers to help us develop transferrable skills for our community and beyond.

Throughout 2021 we will develop a set of online resources to support the work of maritime heritage grassroots organisations.

The local maritime heritage from Cremyll to Calstock and the River Lynher is rich of content to display and celebrate.

Join Us To Celebrate!

Come and celebrate with us  at our first Cremyll Maritime Festival to be held online this year on 4-6 June. More details will be coming soon so keep checking back for more information!

Resources that Safeguard The Future of Maritime Heritage

In these difficult times small maritime projects risk losing funds and public interest thus leading to a greater loss of maritime heritage.  As a maritime hub we are creating  learning resources aimed at supporting maritime projects to navigate these difficult times and build resilience to see them though and succeed.
