Welcome to 3rd\5th Lancing
Sea Scout Group's website.
We are a Sea Scout group based in North Lancing in Sussex and take young people from 6 years old to 14 1/2 in 3 sections, Beavers, Cubs & Scouts. We are a very active group, having large fleet of sailing boats & Kayaks as well as other activities like camping & hiking, archery & rifle shooting.
Due to Covid-19 all face-to-face scouting is currently suspended, but scouts can follow our scouting at home blog where lots of fun and interesting challenges will be regularly updated to keep you busy.
What's going on...
Between the 29th and the 31st of August our Kayakng compound was broken into with many Kayaks stolen all of our Spraydecks, most of our paddles, buoyancy aids, saftey gear and various other Kayaking and Canoe equiptment. If you see any of the Kayaks in the photos for sale please do not hesitate to get in contact with us or the police.
We have had an overwhelming support from the Facebook community and thank you all for your support it is greatly appreciated, one of the parents of the scouts has set up a go fund me page for us which can be accessed by clicking th picture below or here if you wish to support us : https://gf.me/u/yvg984
Once again thank you all for your support, we cannot believe the response we have had from the local community.
After a huge amount of work Supeta has now been launched and is moored up in shoreham harbour awaiting the final inspections to be done before it can be used.
She will require a little more work before being ready and also Leader training / familiarisation activities. Thereafter as soon as the current situation allows, be ready to take Scouts out to experience large yacht sailing.
Scouting countinues online!
Scouting hasn't stopped at 3rd 5th, all sections are continuing to host our weekly meetings online via zoom. We've been up to all sorts, from quizzes, cooking, bingo, sailing theory lessons to prepare scouts for when we are allowed back on the water, back to basics and map reading.
