Recently, 20 of our Year 6 pupils embarked on an unforgettable adventure to Rockley Point in Poole for a thrilling two-night residential trip. But this wasn’t just any ordinary excursion; it was an opportunity to dive headfirst into the exhilarating world of sailing!

Setting sail from Rockley Sailing Centre, our young sailors, many of whom were beginners to the sport, embraced the challenge of mastering the Pico sailing dinghies. Day one greeted them with boisterous winds and crashing waves, providing a true test of their newfound skills. Despite a few capsizes along the way, their determination remained unyielding.

As the sun rose on day two, a picturesque scene awaited them: clear blue skies, gentle breezes, and tranquil seas. It was a stark contrast to the previous day’s wild adventure, offering the perfect conditions for honing their sailing prowess.

Under the guidance of experienced instructors, our pupils not only conquered the waves but also achieved their RYA Stage 1 certification, marking a significant milestone in their sailing journey. Laughter echoed across the waters as friendships were forged, and memories made.

Of course, no sailing adventure would be complete without proper gear. Wetsuits and buoyancy aids were donned, ensuring the safety and comfort of our young sailors throughout their expedition.

But the excitement didn’t end with the trip. Many of our pupils have caught the sailing bug and are eager to continue their journey beyond the school grounds. Their newfound passion for sailing is a testament to the transformative power of outdoor education, igniting a lifelong love for adventure and exploration.

As we reflect on this unforgettable experience, we extend our heartfelt thanks to the staff at Rockley Sailing Centre for their unwavering support and expertise. And to our Year 6 sailors, may your love for sailing continue to soar, propelling you to new horizons and endless possibilities!
