Shelter building, lobster creels and the Atlantic rowing boat

as the remaining teams to sea kayak and climb head out on the water and to the rocky outcrop

Wednesday July 11th 2018

Another busy day at the school and we are yet to see the sunshine that has been with us for most of the summer so far. However it was good and calm, perfect for the sea kayaking teams this morning and afternoon.

The Blue’s were rock climbing and abseiling, the Red’s were sea kayaking, and all teams looked at shelter building in preparation for the island, and travel in the boats to collect lobster pots and see the Atlantic rowing boat that Rebecca’s father used in his epic 1966 crossing.

A varied catch today in the creels including a lobster, lots of velvet swimming crabs, some starfish and a few good sized brown crabs, all returned to the sea after a bit of a closer look.

The team are well and we have managed to get Radio 5 live on the portable radio just outside the building so the kids can listen to the second half of the football.
