On the morning of November 12th 2015, Room 7 went to Kohimarama beach in the the city, I had a great experience and a great time…
Once I got to school we started to get in the van and enjoy the ride that was coming ahead of us. While we were in the van we started to take photos and listen to music on my phone. We eventually got to our destination we saw the sails parked next to each other on a balcony. Our instructor’s name was Ruben and he taught us how to set up the Sail and how to control it. By the time we got in the water we had our life jackets and rain jackets on, it was very uncomfortable but I managed to get used to it.
We split in half so the other half went in the boat first while the others stayed on the Beach. I had a lot of trouble getting in the boat and controlling but I suddenly I got the hang of it . While I was on the sailboat I looked back at the beach and saw Sonya waving, “Bye Aurora” she yelled. I started chuckling and turned back around and continued having a fun time. I felt the wind blowing my hair and the little splashing caused by my boat. When I reached back to the beach Sonya and the other group was waiting patiently for the partners to come back. After everybody had 2 turns each, Mr. Slade said we had to have Lunch and head back to school.
Our instructor said the girls can get changed in the trailer while the boys get changed at the back of the Sail House on the balcony. When everybody had finished changing we had our lunch and I started making small talk with the girls and making some videos with them. While we were eating Ruben our instructor gave out certificates, “You were probably the best group I had” he stated. After a little while we saw the School van pull up and the next group came and I started running up to my best friend Ierei.
They started gearing up and we started getting in the van, but there was a slight problem. Justin and Paul couldn’t fit in the van so Mrs. Jeeney rang Mr. Coakley to pick them up and we drove away and went back to school.
I had so much fun Sailing and the best part was we didn’t have to go with partner and I also had fun playing on the beach and making Sandcastles. This was so far the best day of the week.
