Our Scout Sailing Centre based at Carsington Water Sailing Club can provide opportunities for you to try sailing. We run a variety of sessions across the summer months. These include:
• Taster sessions are run by qualified supervisor and are designed to offer young people a new fun experience and contribute towards the scout badge scheme
• Courses provide a more in-depth sailing experience over 6 sessions and can lead to an RYA qualification (subject to successful completion).
