Perse pupils savour a splashing Summit 10 trip

Perse pupils put their sailing skills to the test during a Summit 10 trip to the Norfolk Broads.

As well as weekly training in the run-up to the four-day camp, those taking part had earned their spurs by recently gaining their RYA Level 1 dinghy sailing qualifications.

During the camp, students had the chance to sail traditional half-decker sailing boats, paddle in canoes and turn their hand to stand-up paddleboarding.

They also had opportunities to drive the motor cruisers, which acted as both journeying craft and accommodation for each crew.

Students socialised, cooked and slept on their boats, taking pride in their temporary homes. Each crew designed and flew their own flag and competed in various inter-crew competitions including the ‘Broads Bake Off’!

Perse outdoor pursuits instructor Kieron Taylor said: “All students stepped up to make the most of the activities available, even during some challenging weather, and helped to make it a trip to remember.”
