Yacht sailing trip

2 September 2017

20 Scouts and Explorers (aged 12-17) and 5 adult leaders (aged 19 to, ahem 50+) from across northern Wiltshire (including Corsham) returned yesterday from a week of sailing 72ft racing yachts along the south coast.  It was a really great trip, which everyone has thoroughly enjoyed.

The trip was on two Challenger yachts, owned and run by the Tall Ships Youth Trust.  The boats themselves were originally built for the BT Global Challenge, so are really capable ocean-going racers.

If you’d like to take a look at the adventures of these Scouts, browse posts and pictures on Facebook here.  If this looks like your kind of adventure, keep your eyes open in the coming months for the chance to do something similar next summer.
