Guillemot Leader Keelboating Day

November 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

All Scout and Explorer Leaders
As part of a newly formed and exciting partnership with the Guillemot trust based over in Liverpool, we will soon be able to provide Scouts and Explorers from Mersey Weaver free keelboat sailing training out on the River Mersey.
As part of the launch of the scheme, we are offering an exclusive free opportunity for leaders from Mersey weaver to come and have a go at keel boating for themselves in two weeks time.
Climb aboard, learn new skills and have a day out on the water so you can help sell it to the young people when we launch in the new year.
Experience on the water and sailing knots would be useful however this is not essential and indeed not a barrier to taking part, as the instructors from the guillemot trust have all the necessary skills, accreditations and knowledge to facilitate this and future events. However we’d love some leaders who might be interested in helping to develop this relationship and help with future training events run by the trust to come along.
If you are willing and able, please sign up to one of the slots for leader taster sessions on the 27th November.
Transport to and from the docks will be under your own steam however we will share the names and contact details of those who are happy to car share and we can use the Minibuses if there is a willing driver.

Closing date for bookings is 8:00pm on the 24/11/2021.
