Our Sailing Day

Hello my name is Spencer and have you ever been sailing before because, luckily I have. Today I will be talking about Room 6 and Room 7 going sailing – so enjoy. Last Thursday, Room 6, Room 7, and the teachers were excited before we went to Panmure Basin for our sailing experience. 

 

Before the bell went, we barged out the gates and marched to the lagoon and when we walked past the boxing centre, my friend Pyro thought we were going to the boxing centre.

 

When we got there we had to walk like 10 miles – it felt like HELL!!! I was low on energy, legs hurting and it was painful When we got to the lagoon basin we listened to the teachers named Steph, Blair and Ellie.

 

Soon Room 7 went on the water first and we learned about some stuff like pulleys, the boom, knots in ropes, engines, sails and more things.

 

After Room 7 had finished on the water, it was our turn to sail. At first I didn’t have a partner to go with so I went with Steph in the speedboat. It was fun going fast. Later I swapped with Paula and went with Kava. I jumped over the side into the water which was very salty.

 

I struggled to walk back up the hill to school but I was very happy to walk through the school gates and get to class. It was a great day.
