In order for the team to properly administer and plan the Thursday sessions, bookings close 11.59pm on the Sunday prior to the session taking place.

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).

Transport

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 (9.30pm on 13th July).

Transport will not be provided for the Saturday sessions.

Cost

Each fun session will cost £5. The Staged Activity badge courses will cost £35. Saturday sessions will cost £5. 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! Confirmation will be sent by email.
