Excelsior trip for City Academy

Sailing in Excelsior a group of girls from City Academy learnt to ‘sweat and pull’ halyard lines, coil long excesses of rope and steer the boat between particular navigational points. One evening they went onto the beach in a rib and cooked food the food they had prepared on a bbq. The trip ended with an overnight sail back to Lowestoft, each took three hour watches to make sure the boat was safe and stayed on course. Overall, they learnt many new skills but eagerly looked forward to a shower on their return!
