The sailing season for 2021 is underway!
Additional controls are in place to ensure we are Covid-Responsible, meeting both Government and Scouting guidelines.
The 2021 programme can be found here.
Please contact the office via firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to make a booking for the remaining dates for this year.
In the winter months I’m keen to learn how things work and I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can between now and the start of the sailing season.
Here’s hoping that in 2021 we can create memorable sailing adventures for everyone.
Discovery Sailing Project is recruiting for a Project Organiser. The organiser will lead the day to day operations of the Project. They will be the first point of contact with our customers, organise sea staff and provisioning for our voyages, and oversee the maintenance and safety compliance of our boats.

As with all Scout Association groups, Discovery Sailing Project is suspending all face to face activities, which includes sailing, until further notice. This is a very sad and disappointing announcement to make – Discovery’s volunteer members have been working hard over the winter to get the boats ship-shape for another sailing season. We were looking forward to the spring sailing season, introducing many Scouts, Explorers and other young people to the delights of Sail Training, and seeing them grow and develop as a result.
It is clear that weekend voyages in April and May will not be going ahead, and I’ve emailed leaders who have organised these voyages.
Looking further ahead, the picture is unclear, but we will be monitoring the situation, and following the Scout Association’s guidance. We are keen to recommence Sail Training voyages as soon as possible, but the health of our young crews and volunteer Sea Staff, and that of the wider community, has to be our first priority.
We are pleased to announce that we have recruited a bosun.
Thanks to everyone who applied!
