Dinghy Sailing


Dinghy Sailing can be accessed by just about anyone regardless of location, age or mobility. Dinghy sailing is fun and laid-back if all you want to do is float around an inland lake and just take in the view, or it can be fast and exhilarating as you hang out on the trapeze of a lightweight racing boat.

Even if you have never thought about dinghy sailing before and have no idea about rigging a boat or identifying the boom from the bumkin, it does not matter.


Kent Scouts offer Topper fun days, and 'Try Sailing' days as well as working with other clubs and organisations to give you the opportunity to try out this great sport.


Dinghy sailing is for anyone, wherever the wind hits the water.


Please contact the Activities Sailing Team to find out how you can get onto some water near you and have some fun.


Please be aware that to take part in this activity you do need to have a qualified leader / instructor / permit holder. But dont worry as the Kent Scouts Activities Sailing Team can provide these for you or advise you on where to find them.



Water Sports Adventure Camps - Bewl Reservoir


Bewl Water Sports Committee offer taster sessions, providing the opportunity to try Dinghy Sailing, Windsurfing and Kayaking/Canoeing over a weekend camp.


This is an ideal opportunity for Scouts to try a variety of water sports for the first time and for leaders to offer a water activity weekend camp for their Scouts with little effort on their part. The leaders don't even have to attend (subject to age limitations), althoughthey are very welcome and anyway, why should the youngsters have all the fun!
