The Rockley Team show their skills on the water!

Rockley owner Peter Gordon, Operations Director Rob Clark along with Rockley staff and year 1 BTEC students take to the waters to show off their high performance skills during filming for Yachts & Yachting.

When Yachts and Yachting approached Rockley asking if they could use our venue, boats and expertise so that they could film a series of high performance manoeuvres, of course we obliged. This basically meant that Rob and Peter could play on the water for the morning instead of sitting at their desks!

Along with three of our BTEC Level 3, year 1 students, the five Rockley Team took to the waters on Hartley 15's to perform a series of sailing techniques and manoeuvres which included; roll tacks, roll gybes, race start line practice, lee-bow tacking manoeuvres and downwind with the spinnaker.

Our  three BTEC students consisted of Chloe Taylor, Adele Young and Katie Collier. Having been a squad sailor for many years, Adele has already gained her RYA Dinghy Instructor certificate. Chloe and Katie however had never sailed before they started the course in September, so to be given the opportunity to sail at this level with two very experienced sailors proved to be a fantastic learning experience for them both.

When asked if she felt daunted at the task of sailing alongside Rockley Owner, Peter Gordon, Chloe responded by saying; "It was amazing fun and I learned such a lot!"

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!
