SWAN 73

31st March - 8th April 2023

Learn to sail. Explore the Norfolk Broads. Have an adventure.

 

Scouts, Explorers and Young Leaders who will be aged 13 or over on 31st March 2023 are invited to apply for the SWAN Norfolk Broads Sailing Expedition (31st March - 8th April 2023).

 

The SWAN Expedition is an 8-day adventure in Norfolk, sailing classic river cruiser yachts in crews of 3-5.

 

Learn to sail a classic river cruise yacht as part of a small crew in the charge of an experienced Broads skipper who holds the appropriate Scout Association Permit. We live aboard the yachts for 7 days, sleeping cooking and eating aboard with the whole crew taking part in all aspects of sailing and housekeeping. During the week we explore the rivers and broads with a different mooring each night.

 

If you are interested and would like more information please get in touch.
