In October 2020 West Lancs Scouts will run a 1-week yachting trip to the Dubrovnik area of Croatia.
Each boat will have a Skipper, Assistant, and up to 6 young people from Explorers and Scout Network (aged 14 or over on 1st September 2020).
We will spend the week sailing around the islands off the Croatian coast, living and eating on board the yachts. There will be plenty of time for exploring some spectacular places including some onshore activities at the islands we visit, as well as swimming off the boat and snorkelling.
There will be two compulsory training weekends prior to the trip, so you can learn the basics of sailing a yacht and get to know your fellow crew mates.
The cost of the trip is £995 which includes all your travel, food, insurance and training. The only things you will need on top of that, are perhaps some personal clothing (general outdoor activity clothing is fine), a life jacket (around £50) and travel to/from the training weekends, likely to be in the Lake District. If travel, or finances, are a problem then please let us know in the notes on the application form as this shouldn’t be a barrier to you attending and we may be able to help.
The boats will be 48′ Sailing yachts with 5 cabins and 3 bathrooms, plenty big enough for the crew of 8 people. Young people will share a cabin. You can see a layout of this sort of yacht below.
Trip Dates: 24th – 31st October 2020
Closing Date for Adult Applications: 24th November 2018
Closing Date for Young People: 2nd March 2019
