Explorer Tasters

2 sessions; 18.30 to 20.30 and 19.00 to 21.00. Please arrive 15 minutes early dressed ready to sail.

Participants must be able to swim and be confident in the water.

Each group of 6 Explorer scouts will be given instruction and then will take turns to sail on their own in small boats, Toppers or Picos, under the watchful eye of a safety boat. The format is ideal for the Explorer age range and is similar to the start of the RYA Stage 1 course.

Each group will have a minimum of an instructor and safety boat with 3 boats ready to sail at the start time and they will help to put their boats away at the end.

Buoyancy aids and helmets are provided.

Clothes: Wetsuits are recommended, alternatively (and weather dependent) shorts, leggings / joggers, tee shirts, fleeces, lightweight cagoules (preferably in synthetic fibres) and wet boots, daps or old trainers.

Bring a towel and spare change of clothes in case you get wet.

Jeans, wellies, hard soled shoes and crocks are not suitable.
COVID19 precautions.
The changing room is currently closed (a COVID 19 requirement) and going home wet and wrapped up in a towel may be easier than changing outside.
Explorers must comply with the COVID 19 requirements we have in place at the time and will work in pairs, wear a face covering on shore and sanitise hands after swapping.
Eating and drinking on site is not permitted.
The Leader must keep group details for 4 weeks as we will notify them, if necessary, for track & trace.
