Wet & Wild Adventure Week – August

(scroll down to book a place)

What’s it all about?

Join Oban Sailing Club for a new fun packed Wet and Wild Week for juniors this Summer.  With fully qualified RYA instructors overseeing this adventurous 5 days on and near the water, you can be assured of getting wet, learning new skills, working in teams, laughing a lot and challenging yourself to try new and exciting activities.

What activities might I expect?

Activities will be matched to the changeable Oban weather but will include – Dinghy Sailing – get afloat and try a boat or if suitably qualified taking a dinghy out on your own.  Drascombe Gig Adventures & games, sailing as a group to an island – exploring, picnics, scavenger hunts, team games, an introduction to powerboating, knot tying, raft building, rock pooling and a whole heap more……

Who is it for?

Two Age groups each week – age 8 to 11 (just finished P6 heading for P7)    Age 11-15 (starting S1 Aug ’24 – S4)

** You must be a competent swimmer to attend this activity. **

Please note:  although on site at the same time, these groups will be doing all activities separately – so siblings in different age ranges will rarely be together other than the start or finish and occasional lunches.

10 spaces are available for each age group each week.

Please submit a separate booking for each child you wish to attend.

What Kit do I need?

You’ll need to bring:

  • swimsuit and old t-shirt/rashie for under a wetsuit
  • suitable footwear that can get wet. Old trainers are ideal. No Crocks or similar please.
  • towel
  • a change of clothes
  • warm coat and hat (for over the top of a wetsuit, for shoreside activities)
  • sunhat/suncream/sunglasses (wishful thinking!)
  • packed lunch and drinks bottle each day (kitchen facilities + microwave available

Wetsuits and buoyancy aids etc are available to borrow free of charge, but by all means bring your own full-length wetsuit .

Please label all your personal kit. Whilst the clubhouse will be locked when not in use, the club is not liable for loss of personal property including phones / electronic devices, and these may be best left at home.
