Learn the techniques of splicing knotting braiding whipping etc
The first cycle of the Maritime Rope work programme has been completed.
The following is a proposed programme into the future.
1. The Maritime Rope Work Handbook has been reviewed. You can access it in the Fleet Website.
2. Eleven Youtube demonstrations have been posted to date. More to come.
Access via a search on Youtube under Maritime Rope Work.
3. Plan is to continue the Zoom discussion sessions. These will be a Q & A format with a planned key topic segment from a syllabus list. This gives you the ability to drop in and out to select the topic/s that interest you.
4. This is a practical operation, so always come to Zoom sessions with a piece of rope and tools. Some tools and rope are available through the SHF On-line Shop.
If you are interested in joining in please register your interest by email at email@example.com . When you register also indicate which days/times would suit you for the Zoom sessions. The last secessions were on Wednesday evenings 6.00 to 7.00 ish.
There may be a need to have two or more sessions
