Cat Sailing in a Force 6 - Thrilling!

When the RYA approached us to assist with their feature on how thrilling Catamaran sailing can be even for novices, of course we agreed to help. Who knew we would be faced with Force six wind conditions! 

It was a thrilling day on the water as Rockley Owner Peter Gordon and Instructor extraordinaire Paddy Powney took three novice Cat sailors out in Poole Harbour for literally a morning of blasting across the waves! Who needs the America's Cup!?

The RYA, who are running a feature in relation to the America's Cup wanted to show how thrilling catamaran sailing can be even for those who have never tried it before. At one point it looked like it may just be too windy for our novices as the forecast showed a Force 6 gusting Force 7, however with near perfect sailing conditions and an enthusiastic group wanting to experience the thrill of cat sailing then there was only one thing to do! 

Natalie, Peter and CJ had a fantastic experience out on the water under the guidance of two of our most qualified members of staff with CJ claiming that Rockley had set the bar too high and that he couldn't possibly go out in anything less than a Force six now!

The benefits of a school residential trip for teachers and group leaders >

Teachers are amazing! However, with increasing pressures on workload and such a busy job, why take the extra time to organise a school trip? Well, because believe it or not there are many benefits for you, as well as the students. 

Preparing young people for their first residential trip (for the youngsters) >

Every young person is unique - some come across as confident, energetic leaders, whilst others shy away from the limelight to work away in the background. Here at Rockley, we celebrate the achievements of all our students and nurture and mould their skill set. However, no matter how outgoing or confident a young person may be - going on a school trip away from home for the first time, can be scary and daunting which is why we want their first trip away to be a fantastic one! 

We're making waves!
