Objectives

  1. Develop Scouts’ skills to a level where Brownsea Guides are confident they can skipper a craft safely and competently.
  2. Develop qualified and competent Youth members, supported by Adult Leaders from Brownsea and their Group, to form regular crews to support future sailing activities, thus developing their own skills further and helping other youth also progress through OAS.

Our Approach

  • The scout method
    • Reinforce Skills through learning by doing skills (including rigging and de-rigging)
    • The patrol system to develop crews
    • The experience in the group to teach others. Those most competent will be able to extend their skills.

Welcome to the 4 Day Scouts Sailing Program

  1. Youth signing up to this program need to be self-sufficient. (Scouts, Venturers, Rovers, Leaders). Participants will be expected to Prep Meals and Clean up
  2. Permission and Payment Via Care monkey. To register your leader or parent needs to provide your Operoo Profile Email Address to brownsea.bookings@gmail.com, so we can provide the best care.

  4. Bring OAS Books if you have them to record your progress.

  6. We start at 8:00 am on the Saturday morning and finish at 3pm on the Tuesday.
  7. We ask youth members leave your mobile device at home. We have found that engagement with other participants and the program suffers, and you may be asked to leave it with the program leaders if you bring it, or worse we often hear they have gone missing or chargers are lost.
