This year we’re proud to say Boleh’s Portland deployment sailed well over 100 local schoolchildren and teaching staff, supporting the Chesil Sailing Trust’s popular ‘Sail for a Fiver’ scheme. Students from All Saints, Atlantic and Budmouth Academies and from Wey Valley and Dorset Studio Schools were taught nautical knots, the use of fenders, and how to hoist and lower Boleh’s mainsail and genoa. At sea, they learnt to tack, gybe and helm, giving them the full Boleh experience.
We’re also thrilled with the Feedback, from the children: “ It has been one of the best days…..ever”; “We don’t want it to end”; “ We want to stay longer”; “Such a good day and such good value at £5”. And from their teachers: “The teams that led the days were fantastic, super friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic”; “We’ve had a whale of a time, the students loved it”; “Both groups had an amazing days sailing”; “Thank you for the wonderful opportunity”.
