Sailing

On the 1st of May our class went sailing at Okahu Bay for the whole day.

When we arrived at sailing our class got a pep talk from the
instructors who were Steve, Justin and JR. They showed us
how to rig up the Optimist. After they showed us we had to rig our own
boats. Once the boats were set up we got changed into a wet suit and had morning tea.

Once morning tea was finished we launched the boats. After the boats were
launched we sailed around for an hour or two. During sailing I enjoyed the
blue water but the best part was sailing by myself because I had more control.
When we were done we dragged the boats back onto shore and had lunch. After
lunch we sailed for a half and hour or more then we dragged the boats in again to
disassemble them  and get changed. We said bye to our instructors then left.

Many thanks to the Lion Foundation, Rotary, Volvo and Zhik for
sponsoring the day.
