Discovery Sailing – April 2019

In April , 22 scouts and leaders from Wansdyke District took to the Solent aboard two Yachts for an experience of big boat sailing sleeping on-board for two nights. The conditions were light on Saturday with Force 4 to 5 on the Sunday.   Sunday, the boat was under full sails and some awesome sailing was had.

 The boats sailed out on the Hamble River and across the Solent staying on a Marina in Gosport overnight

“Just to say my 2 sons had a fantastic time on the sailing trip. It is an amazing experience for them and one which most people will never have in their lifetime. Thank you so much. Hopefully they will get to do it again” Quote from a mother

Needless to say we have booked again for next year. Details of the Discovery project can be found on
