On the 5th of April 2017 on cold rainy, but fine day, Tamaki Primary school thought it would be a great idea of some students from the school that were mature could go sailing.
There were two group there was Group A with Miss Morrison and Group B with MIss Ashley. I was in Group B with Miss Ashley. We had to wait a while for Faka’ata’s mum to get here because he forgot his swimsuit. We then hopped in a car to get to our destination which was in the Orakei Okahu bay. I was with Mrs Fepuleai and her car was the cleanest and organized I had seen.
There were two kind men named Rubin & Gavin, they were really helpful. Firstly we got in buddies (I was with Grace) then they mentored us and instructed how to work and make the boat.Once we were finished we pushed our boats down a very rocky hill. We left our boats and had morning tea. While we were making our starved stomachs relaxed, they adjusted our boats. After morning tea we hopped on our boats and the Rubin lead us to a surface named a pontoon in the sea were we can wait for the others to come. Rubin hooked us up to his boat to see what it is like on the boat and on a certain place he let our ropes go which made us scream like a lion. It was really nerve racking for Grace and I because we were quite stranded, but we got the hang of it since Grace did the sail and I had the job of steering like I was actually a sailer.
It was then near the end of the trip and the part I mostly enjoyed came to me like the wind, and it was you and you buddy had to work together and knock the boat down, flip it back over, and then climb back on top. Everyone had to use our boat because we were last but that was okay. The other man named Gavin took us and another pair back to shore to pack up which made me feel so upsetting since it was ending.
It was a very exciting thing to do for my life and I felt absolutely free and so blithe. What an AMAZING ADVENTURE!!!.
