Learning to sail is not just fun.
It's exhilarating, great exercise and helps Bede's pupils develop coordination, team work and a great sense of achievement.
At Spray watersports, after a safety briefing, pupils begin learning the ropes straight away; how to steer, how to set and trim sails, how to tack and gybe.
All sailing at Bede's starts on the Princess Park lake. Then, as pupils progress, our sailors move to sailing on the sea.
Throughout the sessions pupils also work towards their RYA sailing qualifications.
