Camp 2017!

Bula Bloggers,

As some of you know ( if you read my other post) some students went to camp! We had a blast and just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped! Today I will share with you my time while I was sailing. I was sailing with , Kaff ( instructor) , Dani, Wally, Filipe, Villiami and Me.

Putting on wet suit shorts wasn't a problem but it was quite hard. My group was going sailing. Obviously before we clambered into the small boat, we discussed the different parts and what they do, also how to set a boat up. I enjoyed learning about the boom because it has a cool name and has a cool job. The boom helps and supports the sail so that it can stay strong. You have to be careful with it because it can hit you in the head and go BOOM! That's where the name comes from! We carefully took the boat into the wavy water and released it. We put the trailer on the sand and hoped inside of the yellow boat. It was amazing. First of all we had Filipe handling the steering wheel and Wally handling the sail. We learnt an old saying from Kaff it was ' a flappy tail is never a happy tail' , which meant that the tail tails on a sail should not be flappy because it means your sail isn't tight enough! Then I took over from Filipe actually it was hard. We all took turns until the turn.... We went around the Marine Boi ( Yellow pole and yellow ball). Everyone got a turn and we were back in no time. When we were coming out the water began to get a little wavy and I hit my leg. But it didn't hurt! It was just a swollen! It was a really fun time in the boat! Thanks Kaff!
