Troop night on the waterFareham Creek Regatta approaches us once more. Tomorrow (18th July) will see us attend this yearly event jointly organised by our friends at 2nd Fareham Scout Group and the Fareham Sailing and Motorboat Club

This is always a fun event with lots of races in Gigs and dinghies, a BBQ and even the opportunity to cross a couple of requirements of the Nautical Skills Staged Activity Badge. You'll even get the chance to see some of the Leaders and parents compete! 

The regatta culminates in the race between 3rd Portchester and 2nd Fareham Scouts for the coveted 'Oar of Fareham'. Last year, Scouts from our very own Ellen MacArthur Troop won in a very close contest. See how they did it in the video below: 

The regatta runs from 12:00 to 16:00 on Saturday. The adult events continue on Sunday from 14:00 to 16:00. Don't forget to keep a look out for when your Leaders arrive in style! 

See you all there!
