Sailing as an activity has been available via the Scout sailing team in Humberside County Scout area for the last six years. Due to its success the County’s sailing team are looking for new recruits to assist with the sailing days throughout each sailing season.
The season consists of six Saturday sessions between April and October. In addition the team performs boat maintenance on a further 2 days outside of the sailing season.
Team members have to be able to sail to a standard equivalent to, or above The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Level 2 in Dinghy Sailing. Anyone belonging to the team has to apply for and hold a current Activity Permit for sailing via the Scout Association.
