As Cowes Week comes to a close, we can now begin to reflect on what we are achieving at one of the world’s oldest and biggest sailing regattas.
For Scaramouche it was an overdue return to where she belongs and nothing out of the ordinary. Old friends have come to see her, some remember her sailing around their home ports in the Caribbean while others sharing fantastic stories of racing against her in Admiral’s Cups.
For our crew of Year 10s, it is a first and is providing so many fantastic opportunities. An opportunity to enhance their sailing, with a range of conditions and the expert instruction of a yachtsmaster. An opportunity to speak to the oldest and wisest in the sailing community. An opportunity to meet their peers in the sailing community. For a week, they have been immersing themselves with sailing’s elite and demonstrated that they deserve to be there.
