Adult and Explorer powerboat training sessions.
We are now taking bookings for the 2017 season. Check out our session pages to find out more about our activities and how to book.
For adults interested in joining us, we will be running free sailing taster sessions on the Drascombe Luggers on the following dates (more dates to follow)...
|Tuesday 11th April, 5pm
|| Postponed, more sessions coming soon
To book yourself onto a session please use the form on the Contact Us page. No previous sailing experience required.
After the taster session, if you would then like to join the team you can move on to dinghy sailing and safety boat skills later in the season. Typically your first season will be spent learning to sail and assisting with running scout sessions, and in your second season you may have achieved RYA qualifications and been assessed for Scout Leadership permits.
So if you are an adult in scouting in Gwent Area and you would like to try sailing with a view to joining our team just send us a message via our Contact Us page to get started. No previous sailing experience required.
