Over the course of five lessons we learned a lot; for example, how to rig a boat, how to turn the boat and how to move to the other side of the boat when turning.
During the sessions I also made new friends from other year groups. This was because we were put into different groups with different people every time. The teachers were also very kind. On the last session of training we had the chance to practice capsizing but some of us didn’t want to capsize, so Janice, our teacher, encouraged us to try but didn’t force the ones who didn’t want to.
