12 Mar Sailing on the Steinlager 2
At the end of week 5, the Year 13 PEO class spent two days sailing on the Steinlager 2, a yacht formally skippered by Sir Peter Blake. We sailed around the Hauraki gulf and up to Tiritiri Matangi and anchored the night at Motutapu Island. The students learnt how to sail the boat and how to complete everyday tasks like cooking and washing in the confined living quarters.
It was a great experience for all involved.
