Shell Sailing

Shell Sailing

On Tuesday 15th September, a coach full of about 30 Shells arrived at Farmoor Reservoir to take part in the Radley Shell Sailing Day. This meant that a string of nearly 20 boats were all lined up to be taken up to the far end of the reservoir and shown a course to sail around.

There was a large range of ability and skill: from Shells who have sailed up to some of the helpers’ skill levels, to some who had never even seen a sailing boat at all.

Even though it was nice weather, most of the Shells were very wet from capsizing; but thanks to the helpful assistant instructors who came to their aid, everything was back to normal.

With a series of exercises, from sailing around a course to follow-the-leader, the whole day was a great success and, overall, there were smiles all round.
