Scouts and Explorer Scouts travelled to Ipswich for the weekend 13-15th September to enjoy the Annual Sailing Activity arranged for us by Group Supporters Alan and Margery Watts.
Each day a group of Scouts or Explorers went out into the North Sea by way of the River Orwell, passing the docks at Felixstowe and Harwich. Everyone had an opportunity to navigate and steer the boat under experienced supervision.
Apart from the sailing the Young People took part in camping activities at the Ipswich Scout Camp Site nearby and then entertained Mr and Mrs Watts to a BBQ on the Saturday, to say ‘thank-you’.
Support and transport was provided by Leaders and the Irthlingborough Scout Active Support Unit. A big thank-you for their support making this super activity possible once again!
