SWAN Sailing expedition – 29 March – 6 April 2024

What is SWAN?

  • It’s part of Peterborough District Scout Council and organises week long sailing expeditions annually. Some of its members also support the Cambridgeshire’s larger water based activities (eg Big Splash).

SWAN 2024 is your chance to:

  • Be an active crew member, sailing a yacht around the Norfolk Broads on an exciting week-long adventure.
  • No prior sailing experience is needed – we’ve got fantastic people who will help you “learn the ropes”.
  • There are also pre-expedition training sessions run during the winter so you can know what to expect and what to bring with you.
  • There can be early starts and sometimes it can be tiring but the way everyone works together creates friends for life and an amazing experience!

Interested?

Who can come: Applications are welcomed from Scouts aged 13 and over (at 29th March 2024); Explorers and assisting adults.
