Poseidon

With a strong focus on water activities, the Poseidon Explorer Sea Scout Unit offers real challenge and excitement for young men and women aged 14 to 18.

With exclusive access to a fleet of kayaks, sailing dinghies, and power craft, members are able to develop their boating skills and extend their experience under the supervision of qualified Leaders.

During the period April – October we meet at Bowmoor Sailing Club, situated on the A417 between Lechlade and Fairford, during the period October – April we meet at ‘The Wick’ in Haydon Wick, Swindon.

As members of Bowmoor Sailing Club we are also able to offer training and qualifications of the Royal Yachting Association.

  • Outdoor and Adventure
  • Global
  • Community
  • Fit for Life
