The Sailing activity at Bede's is open to mariners of all skill levels, from experienced sailors to those yet to find their sea legs.
Pupils new to the activity are enabled to learn the basics of how to sail and about essential maintenance including safety gear and equipment, sailing law, how to rig and even how to re-right a capsized vessel.
Bedians who take part in Sailing Club can gain many RYA certificates and have the opportunity to compete for Bede's or other local sailing clubs at regattas.
Alternatively, members of the club may simply seek the opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy the beautiful Sussex coastline.
When the weather is poor, pupils sail on the lake at Princes Park and with a safety boat constantly on hand there could be few better or safer opportunities to experience one of humanity's great pastimes.
“ Across both the Academic and Co-Curricular programmes at Bede's, we seek out opportunities for each individual pupil to develop esteem, personal strength, competence and, ultimately, mastery. ”
