West Sussex is a coastal county with many opportunities for sailing either along the south coast or one of the inland bodies of water. Details of the Scout Associations guidelines on running sailing activities in scouting can be found here. Members leading Dinghy Sailing as a Scout Activity will need to hold an Adventurous Activity Permit. The Assessment Check list for Dinghy sailing shows the areas that the Leader will need to demonstrate competence in to an Assessor.
The National Governing Body for dinghy sailing is: Royal Yachting Association
In West Sussex is fortunate to operate a Sea School as an RYA Recognised Training Centre, which not only gives us first hand access to the the resources of the RYA, but allows us to offer RYA training courses.
