Sailing in the Wake of Sir Peter Blake 150 150 Simon Whitlock

A key event in Term 1 for 11PE was the opportunity for 23 our students to sail the famous Steinlager 2, the boat that the late Sir Peter Blake used to win the round the world race in 1990. The students sailed and swam for two full days, spending one night sleeping below deck in the same bunks as the ship’s former sailors. The students learnt the importance of safety around the water, as well as the complexities of using the elements to sail the ship through the Waitemata Harbour and abroad.
