Nothing comes without some hard work and acquiring project boats is no exception.
Some fellow scouts offered their slightly unloved old boats to be collected as “projects” for a nautically minded group to renovate and use. Obviously as the only East Anglian group with a narrow boat we jumped at it. Who could be more nautical?
But collecting them was no picnic.
So, Steve and Mark, our GSL and Scott leader driver to north Norfolk to collect the boats of slightly sad condition. And bring them back on trailers to Thetford.
As is often the case it becomes a big adventure.
Back now in Thetford, safe and sound, waiting for the youngsters to start renovating them. Ready for next year’s sailing season.
Any instructors willing to volunteers to teach sailing next year would be amazing.
