MEMBERS of Penarth Scouts Young Leaders unit have sampled life under sail aboard the 40 foot ‘X Beat’ in the Bristol Channel.

The IMX 38 racer cruiser is operated for training or charter purposes by the Cardiff Yacht Company. During the voyage the crew ensured that the explorers were fully involved in the setting up of sails and the navigating in and out of Cardiff Bay.

The Explorers who have leadership roles in local scouting all took an opportunity to take the helm during the voyage.

As they returned to the Cardiff Marina the team agreed that they would like to repeat the experience ……when it’s blowing a gale!
