More students benefit from NMST funding.

14 09 2015

A group of 8 young people from Whitehaven visited Glenridding Sailing Centre earlier this month to undertake their RYA Level 1 ‘Start Sailing’ award for beginners. For many this was their first experience in a boat and the blustery winds of Ullswater provided a great challenge and much entertainment. The students reported huge benefits from their 2 days, including making new friends, increased self confidence, overcoming a lifetime fear of the water and not least learning to sail. Overall a good time was had by all.
