IYRS alumni can be found throughout the world making, building, designing, repairing. IYRS alumni have built America's Cup boats, restored the historic American icon Mayflower II, designed innovative consumer products, started their own successful businesses, and so much more. Their knowledge, skill, and passion changes the world for the better every day.
The Boatbuilding & Restoration program taught me how to build classic wooden boats. But more than that, it taught me to be a creative problem solver, an effective project manager, a trusted teammate - and that I could use the skills I learned to achieve my goals.
