Sailing in Messini

Sailing trip to Messini, Greece

In the first week of half term 30 RHS sailors and four staff travelled to Messini in Greece. They made the very most of the water sports and activities on offer; from sailing and windsurfing to mountain biking, tennis and beach volley ball.

There was an excellent range of high performance dinghies to enjoy including the popular RS800. Unfortunately, the weather took a turn for the worse mid-week and storms bringing lightning and heavy winds stopped sailing for a couple of days. However, on the positive, the resulting large swell caused by the storm allowed the pupils to try kayak surfing and take part in the hilarious Beach Olympic Games.

The trip was very successful and enjoyed by all. A big thanks goes to all the staff who were involved with the trip.
