Scouts Sailing

Welcome to

Derbyshire Scouts Sailing

  • Do you want to do something different?
  • Do you want to learn to sail a dingy?
  • Do you want to get your Sailing Staged Activity Badges?
  • Do you want an adventure?


Derbyshire Scouts have a Scout Sailing Centre, based at Carsington Water Sailing Club.
We run a variety of sessions across the summer months. Including:

  • Taster sessions designed to offer young people a new fun experience and contribute towards the scout badge scheme, under qualified supervision.

  • Courses provide a more in-depth sailing experience over 6 sessions and, subject to successful completion, lead to an RYA qualification.

The courses are run by RYA instructors and are intended to be a mainly Scout / Explorer activity - Dinghy Sailing is very weather dependent and we will adjust the activity to suit age of the group that we have. In time, we may consider Cubs for some of the warmer taster sessions, but for now Scouts / Explorers only please.
