Last weekend six cadets from the Cheltenham College CCF Naval section had the opportunity to experience sailing first-hand. The novice crew travelled to Portsmouth for a day's sailing on the Amaryllis, a Sigma 38 yacht.
The cadets quickly learnt some of the technicalities of sailing a large yacht as they sailed across to Osborne Bay for lunch before spending the afternoon tacking around the Bay.
What a great way to spend a Sunday!
Various camps and courses take place during the holidays giving cadets opportunities to complete sailing, yachting, diving and other adventurous actives, for more information contact J.Gwynne@cheltenhamcollege.org.
