Do remember making paper boats when you were a child? It’s something you very rarely see these days which is such a shame as they’re great fun to both make and race.

Paper boats can be as simple as a sheet of paper folded up along the edges to create a shape like a shallow bowl, or as complex as intricately folded and constructed replicas of real ship designs. Heres a basic tutorial to get you started, once you’ve mastered the basics of how to make a paper boat you can take it a step further by adding sails and some rigging. But why stop at paper boats? We’ve rounded up some DIY’s using driftwood, cork and paper-mache as well.

Happy Sailing x
