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!

Currently working in her spare time locally for a watersports company and buzzing off the back of recently passing both her RYA Windsurf and Dinghy Instructor courses, we find out what made her choose Rockley College and how things are going so far......

Let’s get centre specific! >

When it comes to residential activity trips for young people, there is generally a ‘top 5’ when it comes to what group leaders are looking for. Amongst safety, types of activities and company reputation is always centre and location. This is why, as a company, when choosing an activity centre, the location is at the forefront of our decision-making. Our centres have been specifically selected for their capacity to offer a range of fantastic activities and enhance both the pupil and group leader adventure experience.

We're making waves!
