A fast week with Women In Trades Training Maritime Sampler Classes at Quadrant

We have a new partnership project with Camosun College for their Maritime Trade Sampler Courses. As part of their larger exploration of maritime trades, students spend a week with Quadrant to experience the small craft/recreational side of the industry. This week was dedicated to Women In Trades and we had 13 enthusiastic participants.

Day 1: Abrasives, Adhesives, and Basic Coatings - Sikaflex is an art!
