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 kitted up and given instruction and then will take turns to sail in pairs or on their own in small boats (RS Zests, 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, assistant and safety boat with 3 boats ready to sail at the start time. The Explorers will help to put their boats away at the end of the session.
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.
