Belmont School were once again delighted to accept an invitation from Gordonstoun School to twelve pupils from Year 6 and Year 7 to try their hand at sailing on their vessel, ‘The Ocean Spirit of Moray’. The former is a training vessel used by Gordonstoun to introduce and train children at sea.
The children were accompanied by Mr and Mrs Eastment and when aboard, by OSM’s permanent Skipper and Mates. All of the crew are expected to participate in sailing and other duties on board. They were at sea for two nights.
When on-board, the crew took turns to watch, rest and sail the boat. Other domestic tasks were also shared including cooking! The weather was spectacular and everyone had a fantastic time.
