A ‘wherry’ good time!

Written by Matthew B on 16 July, 2014

1st Bradwell Cubs had a lovely evening in June when they visited the Wherry at Ludham.

Cub Scout Leader, Eileen Taylor, arranged the visit last year as the group have a Wherry on their scarves. Eileen thought it would be nice for the cubs to see a real wherry to mark the 60th anniversary of the group this year.

The Cubs had to put on lifejackets before going to the quayside as there are no rails around the boat.

There were 5 activities arranged for the Cubs to complete and they had 10 minutes at each activity.

The Cubs had fun learning different knots used on the boat, seeing where the living quarters were, where the cargo was held and all the different sorts of cargo, how the mast was raised and how pulleys and blocks were used to make life easier on the boat.

The trip ended with singing songs about wherries that the accordion player had composed.
