We are sailing!

Year 6 took to the docks yesterday and bravely ventured out to the horizon in a two person dinghy. This was the first of a series of five lessons in sailing at the London Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre which we feel very lucky to be taking part in. This week we learned some of the technical names for different parts of the boat – can anyone remember some of them? We also learned how to steer the boat and balance it by distributing our weight either side. What a wonderful way to spend a windy and sunny summer’s afternoon. We already can’t wait for next week!
