On Friday a group of ten Starling and P-class sailors set off in their dinghies to camp on Motuihe for the weekend. Despite heavy rain for much of Friday, the forecast was for better weather and Nick Brewer sent the order at 1500: “All go”! The teenage sailors enjoyed a weekend of mucking around on boats, jumping off wharves, searching for tuatara and kiwi, late nights, and sleeping under “canvas”. Most of all they got a chance to enjoy each other’s company for more than just an afternoon, which, I’m sure, will build deep and lasting friendships on and off the water for life.
Thanks so much to Nick for all of his planning and leadership, and to Craig Liddell and Kevin Green for helping make sure everything was safe and sound en route, on the island and on our return. See our facebook page for more.
