Sailing 2016

In addition to kayaking and surfing our school water-sports programme also involves sailing.

We spent two full days on the Upper Tamar Lake this week working to obtain our Royal Yacht Association level 1 Certificates - which was a big achievement and a lot of fun.

The course invloved leaning to rig the Pico Sailing Dinghies that we were using, how to control the speed and direction of the boats so that we could tack and travel into the wind, and follow courses.
We also had to do things like cap-size drills so that we could get the boats back up, and get back in them, when they tipped over; and we even had some races.
We're feeling very proud of our achievement.
