Ocean Youth Trust Sailing Experience

14 of our brilliant KS3 pupils recently embarked on a 4-night sailing adventure with Ocean Youth Trust! From April 12th to April 16th, they braved the high seas, charting a course from Southampton, to Cowes, then to Poole and back home again.

Our voyage was full of surprises, as we experienced a mix of glorious sunshine and a wild stormy day that put our skills and courage to the test. We encountered high seas and force 8 winds, a rare and exciting condition that even some of their seasoned crew members had only witnessed a handful of times in their career.

But our pupils rose to the challenge with flying colours, showing incredible resilience, teamwork, independence, and communication skills that left us all in awe. We couldn't be prouder of their amazing performance on this unforgettable adventure.
