We’re Off - SWAN 72

With all training complete we now look forward to joining up with the rest of the SWAN participants this Friday (08.04.22).

Despite the trials and tribulations of the last two years there is a genuine excitement to be gathering together as a Scouting sailing expedition.

For most of this year’s Scouts heading to Norfolk, it will be their first SWAN. The forecast is for lively winds so we should get some good sailing across the week.

Thanks go to all the Winchester Contingent for their hard work in the lead up to SWAN. Special thanks go to the 12th Winchester for their hospitality for the three training sessions and to the young people’s parents for the reliable taxi service.


An indication of the team bond achieved in a very short time is that our young people met independently for pizza - they didn’t even save me a slice!!!

We will return tired and happy at the end of next week with many a tale to tell and hopefully some pictures to share and whet your appetite for next year.
