Batchworth Sea Scouts host an annual Family Sailing Evening at Bury Lake Young Mariners (BLYM), Rickmansworth Aquadrome each summer.  It an opportunity for members to come and try Sailing, Kayaking, Canoeing and Dragon Boating; all current Batchworth families and supporters are invited.  BLYM is the water sports centre 5 minutes walk from the main Aquadrome car park, where cars are normally left. Access is via Frogmoor Lane, just off Harefield Road. The centre is then along the path running to the left of the café.

Over 200 people regularly attend, giving family members of all ages a chance to experience fun on the water and relax with friends. We normally also hold our Annual General Meeting during the event and presented a number of Wood Badges, long-service awards and votes of thanks to our volunteers.

Due to the current circumstances, all future events are postponed until further notice.

Covid-19 and Scouting

Batchworth Sea Scouts follows the advice of The Scout Association in relation to the safe delivery of Scouting, who in turn work with The National Youth Agency to translate Government advice into governance rules.  They have implemented a tiered Readiness Level, controlling the type of activities that can be delivered based on local conditions.

We are currently at GREEN readiness level meaning only limited formal restrictions apply to our activities.

We are still required to consider all risks associated with Covid and to mitigate these as appropriate, but we are looking forward to conducting a busy scouting programme this Autumn.

Meeting Times

Meeting times are subject to occasional amendment to accommodate the best programme delivery.
