Year 8 RYA Sailing

Miss Jarvis and Mrs. Maxted had the great pleasure of witnessing the latest sailing recruits gain their RYA 1 qualification recently.

The students have all learnt how to tie various knots, setting the sails (the impact of wind on sails and how to manage this i.e. reefing), helming, crewing and various manoeuvres such as tacking, gybing, slowing the boat down and mooring up.  They have been a fantastic group to work with great teamwork demonstrated as well as enthusiasm and manners throughout.   Your certificates will be issued soon. We are so proud of you all!

With thanks to Miss Jarvis, Mrs. Maxted, Ms. John, Eastwood Whelpton and the Ranworth Trust.
