#ThisGirlCan Sailing and Skills Building
Open sailing session and skills building session for Female Scouts and Explorers at The Den.
This is part of our This Girl Can initiative to encourage more girls to participate in water activities, and as such is only open to female Scouts and Explorers.
Session for female Scouts or Explorer to go on the water rowing and sailing. Sessions are always supervised by a suitable leader, and no experience is necessary. There is no charge for participating in open boating, just ensure you are down in time for the briefing as outlined on the programme and email with more details when you have booked onto the session. Please make sure you bring suitable clothing as outlined below.
All dinghy helms need to have completed the RYA Stage 2 Sailing Course (or be of equivalent experience). This is to ensure you are reasonably competent in a boat, to minimise the amount of close proximity contact you may require from the leader team.
Due to the rules on distancing, those from different households will not be able to sail in the same boat for now. We will therefore mostly be offering individual places on our single-handed boats; the Topazes.
Those from the same household will however be asked to sail together in a Quest to maximise the amount of boats we have available for all. Unfortunately we’re not currently able to accommodate non-family members sailing together.
If after booking you are unable to attend, please cancel the booking or contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ensure the limited places are offered to other members.
