Scouts take to the Solent in sailing project

22 scouts and leaders last weekend took to the Solent aboard 2 Yachts for an experience of big boat sailing sleeping on Board for 2 nights. The conditions were light on Saturday with a force 4 to 5 on Sunday. On Sunday the boat was under full sails and some awesome sailing was had.

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

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.
