Cubs test the water at sailing academy

EIGHTEEN members of the 1st Charmouth Cub Pack descended on the National Sailing Academy on Portland for a water activity day at the end of June.

As soon as they had squeezed into their wet suits, they were paired up and sent out into the harbour, where the Olympic sailing events had taken place in 2012, for their first activity – paddle boarding.

Next up was kayaking followed by a spot of raft building. Surprisingly, their two rafts held together and were sturdy enough for some of the braver Cubs to stand up on them.

As if that wasn’t enough activity for one day, the Cubs still had time for a brief visit to Portland Castle and the chance to sit in, or on, most of the exhibits at the nearby D-Day exhibition.

A really enjoyable day was had by all the Cubs, and the dads and leaders who stayed on to help.
