Regatta Report: May 2009« Back to News


Children have a fantastic day sailing at the HRCST sailing regatta!!!!

Report by Alex Hayton

On the 3.7.09 children from many schools who work with HRCST, joined together on Grebe beach for a big regatta

They did a lot of exciting challenges involving: Ropes, Rowing and even a big sailing race.

The children also had a choice if there group wanted to do a sea shanty and gain some extra points!!!! Alex Hayton , a pupil from one of the participating schools (Wendron) says, “I loved the Regatta the trust had a lot of good ideas which let us kids have a fab time whilst learning loads about sailing!!!!”

In the end all the participating teams joined together and after a big thanks to the staff they discovered that surprisingly Wendron won again (that’s twice in a row!!!!)

In a nutshell it was a very enjoyable and exciting day!!!!
