Wet and Wild at Wimbleball Lake

Although I was at Bridgwater College yesterday it was all classroom work so today was the first day out with a group and it is the first day of a 5 week sailing course for my students as they work towards their RYA Level 1 or 2 Dinghy Certificate. These students are all taking the BND Public Emergency Services Course over the next two years.
The weather was wild with rain and winds of upto 35mph at times wich meant a lot of swimming and hilarity as opposed to perfect sailing technique. Paul ad I introduce the group to rigging a boat, capsize drills and a few basic sailing skills.
