Sailing At South Norwood Lake
Sailing is an exciting new addition to our co-curricular programme at Seniors.
3rd May 2019


 
I was lucky enough to be part of a group of 12 girls who signed up to go sailing. We had our first session this week and we learnt how to rig and de rig a sailboat and we learnt all the parts of one too:

 • Hull
• Tiller 
• Cleats
 • Kicker 
• Port
• Dagger board 
• Tiller extension
 • Sail
• Traveller
• Rudder
• Mast
• Boom
• Starboard

We paddled our boats into the lake. It was scary and exhilarating at the same time. It was really difficult at first but we got the hang of it eventually through a lot of screaming and team work.
The next day my arms hurt so much but it was 100% worth it because now I can just about paddle a boat.
