Our class was separated into 2 groups because there were only 5 yachts. The first group went in the morning and the other group went in the afternoon. Everyone was excited to go sailing. It new to everyone. Our class and Room 6 had the opportunity to participate in Sailing.
When we arrived at Kohimarama beach the other half was wandering around eating and laughing. It looked like that they had so much fun, I saw 5 yatch lining up on the shore with different colours. I was itching to get into the yatch . The first group went back to school and we stayed back for our activity. Everyone got changed into their swimming gear. Reuben showed us how to prepare the yacht. It seemed easy. Reuben was our instructor for the session.
We were joined with a partner and headed off into the sea. The yacht went extremely fast. It was scary at first but I got used to it. I had fun because some of us were fighting, laughing and talking. I and my partner Catherine enjoyed every single moment of sailing. Some of the groups were troubled. So Reuben went back and helped them.Catherine and I went so fast that we couldn’t handle the rope. While we were on the yacht we started to relax and just touched the water.
I’ve experienced a lot during our session. “Turn it the other way” shouted Reuben. Catherine and I couldn't hear him so we were trying our best to turn the flag over but it wouldn’t turn so we didn’t bother. Mr. Slade and William helped us cleaned our boats and helped us put them back in the trailer.
After we got changed Reuben handed out our certificates and we sat down and had our lunch. At the end of the day I had learnt how to control the rope and the 5 rules of using a yacht.
