Year 12's experience Sailing for the first time

Wednesday 17 May 2017

Seven year 12 students took a step into the unknown on Sunday 23rd April 2017, when they volunteered to take part in a Yacht Raching taster day on the Solent.

The intrepid students spent the day learning how a modern racing yacht functions, and experiencing all the key roles, out on the sea.

The opportunity was arranged by Shadowfax Racing. From this experience some of our Ark EGA students are planning to engage with the full training programme which culminates in an 'open entry' yacht race on the South Coast (at the end of this term). We wish them all the best of luck!
