2017 Wooden Boat Festival has ended

Emiliano Marino

Twenty years after it first was published, The Sailmaker’s Apprentice still is recognized around the world as a thoughtful and thorough sailmaking guide. Its author, Emiliano Marino, will be demonstrating in the Boat Shop this Festival!

His knowledge of sailmaking the traditional way is extensive, and he's an expert on the skills, tools and gear for the self-reliant and resourceful sailor.

Emiliano has been a contributing writer to WoodenBoat magazine and to the CWB publication Shavings. He currently writes a column, “The Artful Sailor”, in Small Craft Advisor magazine.
