Sunday sailing 2017

22 May 2017

We’ve arranged a couple of dates for open sailing sessions at the lake in June and July.  They’re available for Scouts and Explorers on the following dates:

  • Sunday, 25 June
  • Sunday, 16 July

We’ll try to get another couple of dates in before the weather drops away in the autumn – possibly one over the school summer holidays and another in September.

Who is it for?
All Scouts and Explorers are welcome.  You can come to just one or both of the sessions and don’t need to ‘book’.  Just turn up.  It doesn’t matter whether you have any sailing experience or not.  If you do, we can help you gain confidence and improve; if you’ve never sailed before, we’ll get you started.

Where and when?
Come to the Boathouse for 10:00.  We will finish about 15:00.
Alternatively, you can do a morning only (10:00 – 12:30) or afternoon only (13:00 – 15:00).
If you’re coming for the afternoon only, please let me know by emailing in advance (

What should I bring?
You will need the usual ‘wet kit’.  A wetsuit is ideal if you have one.
Look at the weather forecast. If it’s going to be cold, make sure you’re dressed suitably.  You will need shoes and they will get wet.  If you’re staying all day, bring a packed lunch.
