Year 6 go sailing!

June 8, 2019

Some of our Year 6 children returned home from their overnight sailing trip on the James cook today.

They sailed from North Shields up the Tyne and moored overnight on Newcastle Quayside returning to Royal Quays marina today.

The children demonstrated grit and determination despite the wind and rain today …… some budding sailors in the making!

They have been on watch, helmed the boat, washed, cleaned and learned how to handle the ropes and navigate.

Well done to all of them!
