Our extended cruise with our returners’ Youth Sailing Scheme always starts with one of its highlights – scrubbing off and antifouling at Pin Mill, in this case of Reminder – you should see the happy faces at the prospect.

However, this is followed by a few days in Secret Water (Walton Backwaters) emulating the Swallows and Amazons with our dinghy fleet.

See photos of their antics.
