Summer 2 Week 1 - Percuil Sailing

Sailing at Percuil


What a fantastic afternoon our Y6 children had on Thursday. Following an early lunch, they set off towards Percuil Boat Yard on The Roseland for an afternoon in the water. Upon arrival, the children and staff were all greeted by three sailing instructors. Following a brief safety talk, they got their wetsuits on and walked around the cove to a secluded beach from which the boats were launched.


Over the period of an hour, the children took part in teamwork games and activities. Working in small groups of 3, they had to move their boats around a point out in the water and attempt to negotiate other boats. In the end, everyone jumped in and enjoyed bobbing around in the late afternoon sun – their lifejackets safely supporting them.


Well done to everyone. Thank you to the instructors. And, we look forward to doing the same again next week.
