There’s a fantastic opportunity at Reva scout sailing centre for anyone interested in water sports. Reva is a 10 acre reservoir close to Hawksworth near Ilkley Moor.
Yorkshire water have generously leased this reservoir for scout watersports activities and there is a superb clubhouse, changing rooms, lecture rooms, kitchen and activity room. There is also a bo’sun store and storage for all sorts of watersports equipment. The centre is generously provisioned with all types of boats, sailing dinghies, kayaks, canoes and safety boats. It really is a dream facility for anyone keen on watersports and a brilliant asset for the scout Association and for all local scout groups.
Unfortunately, we are missing one crucial ingredient. We urgently need lots more volunteers to enable more scouts to be able to enjoy these adventurous sports. So this is a plea to anyone associated, or not currently associated, with scout groups in Bradford, Keighley, Wharfedale, and neighbouring districts who has any watersports skills to step forward and help out with providing sessions for Scouts in this area.
For anyone who may be interested, there is refresher, training and instructor training to get any volunteers up to standard, and used to the equipment. This training will take place on the following dates.
24th of March 2024.
28th of April 2024.
26th of May 2024.
For anyone, without any previous watersports experience, your assistance would also be appreciated, we hope to organise some training for you later in the year.
So if you or a friend or relative know how to sail, kayak, paddleboard, canoe, bellboat , raft or drive a power boat then we’d love to hear from you.
Please contact Antony Cam on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on (07484) 705167 to chat about your skills or book in for the refresher training.
