Outdoor Adventurous Activity Club Learn Watersports!

 

Well the day had finally arrived. The whole group had been looking forward to this day for weeks and eventually it was here!

 

Despite the rotten weather we all had a glorious day. We packed the cars up with the lunches and our equipment and headed off to Mercer's park.

 

After a short journey, we were there and we met Dan our instructor who kitted us up in wetsuits and buoyancy aids and then we were off into the water.

 

The first activity was dinghy sailing followed by kayaking and windsurfing.  Some of use were very nervous, but we all accepted the challenge and overcame our fears. 

 

The group worked exceptionally well as a team.  Throughout the day they supported and encouraged each other and each and everyones confidence and friendship developed as a result.  They had a great time and some even commented "the best day ever" and "I want to come back tomorrow!" 

 

The children have definitely learnt and developed a number of skills through this club such as teamwork, co-operation, trust, confidence, respect, support and how to work together.
