We started at the boat house where we dropped off the power boat, then we walked down to the beach.We then set up the boats and sailed into the abyss…… then we sailed back for lunch!, then in about 15 minutes we sailed off again or we went into the power boat. Wizzing around crashing into waves and then landing hard in more waves. A we fun filled day Isaac Sunderland - Bravest and most Enthusiastic! - Bravery Award for jumping in when he is a weak swimmer!

Woah Mama …was amazing, we had great fun trying to paddle in a straight line and capsizing, we then turned to swap boats and we all fell in. When freya fell in she didn’t scream she shouted “Woah Mama” and the rest of us were just saying it is cold!
