Tachbrook Boating Workshops

Community members sail away on speedboats and canoes


Young Leader Hilten, with the help of the Tachbrook Youth Club, held a 3-day water sports course for 6 young people at the Westminster Boating Base with the aim of both improving their self confidence and inspiring them to pursue more water related sports. 2 days were spent manning and piloting a speedboat while the third and final day was spent working together as a team of steer and pilot a canoe.


The project had a positive and lasting impact on the young people, allowing them to enjoy an experience and gain skills that not many that not many get the chance to. Working together the learned how to pilot and maintain speedboats and canoes. They also improved their physical fitness, self-confidence and communication skills in the process.

Future Developments

Through their efforts, each young person earned themselves membership of the Westminster Boating Base, allowing them to continue to pursue water boating sports and activities. Hilten intends to go on many more residentials and explore the environment as much as possible.
