The Discovery Sailing Project delivers offshore sailing experiences for young people. We give Scouts, Youth Organisations and others the opportunity to develop through sail training.

We are part of the Scout Association, forming the Offshore Sailing section of the Dockland Scout Project and are guided by the Scout Association values and method, http://scouts.org.uk/about.


Discovery Sailing Project is run by volunteers. We need people who love being afloat, who can sail, teach, maintain engines and electricals, apply paint… or who simply want to help out. Above all, we need people who love working with and helping young people. If you have anything from a few days to a few weeks a year, check out the details here
