Hemel Hempstead District Scouts Sailing Sessions

Thursday evening dinghy sailing for Cubs and Scouts at Bury Lake, Rickmansworth.

Individual Cubs or Scouts from Hemel Hempstead District can go dinghy sailing this summer! These sessions are run at the Bury Lake Young Mariners centre by qualified and experienced leaders from around the District (your own Group’s leaders will not be running this activity).

We would also be delighted to hear from parents qualified or not who would like to come and support these activities.

Transport (Limited numbers)

Minibus transport for Thursday evenings is included in the cost. It will leave Apsley PROMPTLY at 5.30pm. We need to be at Rickmansworth by 6.15 to make the most of daylight so we cannot wait around for people! The minibus will return for about 9.00pm (9.45pm on last session in July). When we have a BBQ & presentation at the end of the session.

Cost

Each fun/taster session will cost £6. The Staged Activity badge courses will cost £40 and sailors will need to attend all the sessions to be eligible for an RYA qualification. It is strongly advised that all Stage 1 participants attend a taster session prior to the course starting. All fees to be paid in advance directly to the organisers via the website NOT to your own leaders. There will be no refunds unless due to circumstances beyond our control we have to cancel a session.

How to apply

All applications and payment have to be made via the Hemel Hempstead Scouts website: www.hemel-scouts.co.uk/activities/sailing/ . On receipt of the on-line application form and payment, further information and a permission form will be sent out. Places will not be reserved until the permission form has been returned!
