Year 7 Pupils Take to the Water Aboard Hardiesse

23 May 2019

Year 7 pupils have been sailing the shores of Falmouth Harbour this month, aboard the beautiful sail training vessel, Hardiesse.

Students had the chance to help sail the vessel, after experts demonstrated some of the fundamental skills in operating a sailing boat. Pupils were also informed of the possible accidents that can occur while aboard a vessel.

Indeed, there were high winds during the trips – making for extremely challenging sailing conditions – and pupils experienced just how tough the skill of sailing can be.

Despite the blustery conditions, all students were a credit to the school, and illustrated amazing teamwork and leadership skills.
