Y8s Tall Ships Challenge

Y8s Tall Ships Challenge

As a final part of their Learn to Lead programme, the Year 8s embarked on an extraordinary sailing challenge. The forty children had the opportunity to crew four Challenger Tall Ships on the Solent, travelling from Portsmouth to Yarmouth, Weymouth and Lymington. Despite the inclement weather and grey skies, the children showed great tenacity and strength of character, working as a team in often difficult and testing conditions.  Highlights included seeing dolphins, spotting the Needles off the Isle of Wight (great CE Geography reminder!) and delicious, home-cooked meals on-board. The children learnt all about the ships, the name of the various ropes and sails and how to tie a knot but more importantly they learnt how to work as a team and the staff were all very proud of them.
