Swallows and Amazon experience for Local Sea Cadets

Fairlands Outdoor Activity Centre recently worked with Stevenage Sea Cadets and provided an opportunity for two places on the dinghy sailing course, which took place during the May half term.

Two lucky Sea Cadets were given the opportunity to experience a RYA three day sailing course at Fairlands Valley where they learnt about wind conditions, tides, basic boat controls and self-rescue techniques. The participants, aged 11 and 12, learnt skills which they can put towards gaining badges within the Sea Cadets.

Gavin Davis, Centre Manager, said: “This is a great opportunity for the Centre and the Sea Cadets to work together to allow youngsters from the local community to experience life on the water.”

Fairlands Valley Sailing Centre is just one of the sites managed by Stevenage Leisure Ltd and is committed to bringing people together.
