Yet more return visitors!

Scouts take to the water again

Scouts test the Orwell Leaders show the way Rig up and away!

Neptune Sailing welcomed back yet more Scouts from the local area over the weekend, ably led by a number of very enthusiastic leaders and coordinated by Keith Trevorrow. The group, comprising some of the 1st Debenham members, assembled in the building and were met by some of the County senior leaders. Kitted out in our distinctive centre blue gear they were ready to face the elements, only to find a very low tide!

As the water slowly returned, we were able to venture out into the river in Wayfarers and we made the trip along to Pinmill and back during the morning. Everybody seemed to be in charge and knowing what to do by the time lunch came along, so we moved on to Toppers in the afternoon for those who were continuing for the whole day. In fact one youngster decided to send his Mum home alone, preferring to stay for more! As the afternoon wore on, the levels of confidence were reaching the heights with lots of 'standing-up sailing' going on. And also lots of falling in!! The water temperature was described as 'moderate'!!! Eventually we returned to the shore, though some of the leaders did seem reluctant to do so. We'll be talking about coming back again next year soon.

Bring your group to Neptune Sailing?

Briefing session before the fun begins!

Neptune Sailing can provide a wide range of exciting Outdoor Learning opportunities for schools and youth groups, designed to complement the school curriculum and generate an enthusiasm for learning. Outdoor learning activities can help promote aspects of personal development such as self-confidence, trust and teamwork, and improve problem-solving, decision-making and communication skills. The experience can be carried back to the classroom, providing a lasting influence on the development of young people.

Visiting groups can engage in sailing or powerboating sessions, ranging from 3 hour tasters, or full days, to a programme delivered over a number of weeks. Our aim is to tailor activity programmes specific to your group's need.
