Scouts - Advanced Sailing Adventure Program


Venture Crew

This program is for you if you've sailed with us before or have good previous sailing experience and want to improve your skills. Building on basic sailing abilities you'll experience a night sail and an ocean sail (weather permitting). You'll also learn advanced sailing maneuvers such as Man Overboard under sail, anchoring and/or picking up a mooring buoy under sail, crew management, preparation for sea, passage planning and 'compass based' chartwork and navigation.

What you learn

If you take part in our Advanced Sailing Adventure Program you'll be provided with informal, in-depth instruction and guidance in the following areas and your Captain will be happy to cover anything else, just ask:
  • Preparation for sea, engine checks, stowage, safety equipment, weather forecasts
  • Pilotage (considerations of tidal current, depth, timings, basic bouyage/lightage)
  • Passage planning
  • Navigation using GPS and compass, chartwork including clearing bearings, triangulation
  • Putting in and shaking out reefs - while under way
