On Tuesday this week the F4 Nautical Buchan Badge group were treated to a sailing lesson led by ex Buchan and KWC pupil Ffinlo Wright.
He was once an IAPS U11 Sailing champion and is currently studying at St Andrews University where he is i/c of the Dinghy Sailing squad. It was a damp, drizzly and misty afternoon but that did not deter the enthusiastic F4 group. Ffinlo put the children through the land drills that they would need in readiness for their sailing session with 7th Wave next term. Ffinlo is a senior sailing instructor with 7th Wave.
Before we left the boat park in Port Erin, we set to, clearing up any litter, in particular plastic, as part of our Turn the Tide on Plastics drive.
