Spaulding Youth Boat Building

Last November, a group of nearly a dozen kids launched their pride and joy: the 12-ft Norwegian pram Guppy. The kids had worked for seven months on the little boat as part of the Spaulding Center’s first-ever youth boat building program. The program was so successful, Spaulding’s — in cooperation with 4-H and Big Brothers/Big Sisters — is holding an open house this Saturday for young people and their parents to learn more about this year’s version of it. The Q&A is from 1-3 p.m. and will be held at the Spaulding Center at the foot of Gate 5 Road in Sausalito. For more on the center and the program, go to
