Sailing with CVSS at Bury Lake, Rickmansworth Aquadrome
September 21 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Booking is essential
This is a wonderful opportunity for Dads, Uncles or Grandads and Playskill children and/or their siblings to enjoy sailing, in Colne Valley Special Sailors specially adapted two-seater sailing boats. Hoists are available. Mums are very welcome to come along and watch or to sail with the children too. Andrea will be there on the quayside.
(There are also some six-seater Katakanus; CVSS require 2 x Playskill dads/uncles etc, in each boat just to paddle)
Children need to be aged 3 years and above.
Cost is £10 on the day by cheque (no cash please) payable to Colne Valley Special Sailors. (Please note that there has been a £5 increase from previous years. If anyone has any difficulty with this increase, please do contact us).
Arrival time is 12.30pm to do the paperwork, get buoyancy aids and let the children become familiar with the site before sailing at, or just before, 1.00pm for 1 hour in the 2-seater sailing boats but Katakanu paddling will continue until 3.00pm. If you have 2 children sailing and would like them to sail for ½ an hour each CVSS are more than happy to swap them over after 30 minutes. (You will need an adult on the quayside to look after the child who is not sailing).
Colne Valley Special Sailors (CVSS) sail at Bury Lake at Rickmansworth Aquadrome, Frogmoor Lane, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire WD3 1NB. Car parking is free at the Aquadrome but there is a walk of about 5 minutes (on a paved surface) to the sailing club, Bury Lake Young Mariners.
