Dorset School Games 2017

This year's Dorset School Games, which took place on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 June for the third consecutive year, saw over 220 local school pupils compete on the water to represent their schools.

Day One saw Primary School students from years four, five and six and Secondary School pupils from years seven to eleven on Day Two work together as a team to sail and compete against fellow local schools for the popular Dorset School Games medals. 

Unfortunately Day One did not deliver as much wind as everyone would have liked, but spirits were very high and the school pupils took to the water and showed real team spirit, camaraderie and positive competitiveness. Congratulations to all of the pupils and school that took part. 

The Secondary School pupils were fortunate to have a lovely day of sun, wind and great sailing with teachers and students having fun both on and off the water. The great turnout of schools and students meant that there was a packed day of racing with a very good level in the Gold Fleet. 

The ongoing friendly competative clash between the boy's and girl's schools continued with the girls taking advantage of the lighter morning winds racking up the points, while the boys played the shifts out on Poole Park Lake to make for a very close finish overall.
