Ask The Expert - Part V

Part five of our Ask the Expert series with Rockley Operations Director, Rob Clark, addresses residential holidays for children and what they can get out of it.

Q What is so great about a junior / youth residential holiday? What will my children get from it?

A Though it seems a hazy memory for me, the 10-16 year old age range is a period when we develop hugely as individuals, finding confidence, independence and an initial awareness of who we are and what makes us tick. This can be hugely supported by the ability to get away from normal life, stand on our own two feet and gain new experiences whilst making new friends - but always knowing there is someone keeping an eye over you to make sure you stay out of harms way.

This is just as important for us as parents as it is for the youngsters and with a residential programme we can be confident that our children have the ability to spread their wings a little whilst remaining in a supportive, supervised environment.

The fact that on a Rockley residential programme students get to take part in some fantastic activities, is an even greater incentive and we feel confident that with our 40 years of experience delivering residential activity trips to young people we can provide an experience that will last long into their adult life – that certainly seems to be the feedback of our students and families.

Rob’s blog - Moving from a small pond to a big sea: Expanding your competitive horizons >

Like most sports, in sailing there always feels like there is a home field advantage. We may not have the crowd cheering us on – certainly not in my case – but familiarity with a venue or set of competitors helps create a confidence that you have a sense of what will happen, where the wind will shift or tide will flow, and the moves and counter moves of your competition. In fact knowing where you stand in the local pecking order can give a timely nudge to push forwards and establish the natural order or be comfortable that you have done well in your relative result.
