This summer, I learnt to sail
with Nigel, Tom C, Charlie G and Rhian

It was the best skill I have ever learnt.

It wasn’t easy, but like all skills, it comes with practise. Just remember, persevere and you can do anything! I certainly was not keen on falling into the reservoir or getting wet at first, but I had made friends during this course that made me feel confident and [I admit] less worried about capsizing. I would recommend this to anyone, because as long as you have fun and just enjoy, it, you’ll find yourself at a sailing event, having the time of your life!
