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.
