Over the past 6 weeks, two groups of students have been learning how to sail a Rebels boat at Bartley reservoir, none of them having done this before. The experience has been immense and at least 10 of them have come away with a Stage 1 qualification – how fantastic. 😊
Even better news! 10 of them were selected by the Rebels Sailing instructors to take part in a regatta today at Bartley. After the heats, three pairs made it to the finals and there was a 5th place medal finish for Anish and Nikisha Dhot. The efforts of all 10 meant that the group finished 4th overall. 🏆🏆🏆
To have been able to see them grow in confidence, hear and see the buzz when they returned each week about how well they were getting on and to give them an experience they would never had been able to have was priceless.
