Oakham Sailing Success
Thomas H, Will F, Harry B, Adam D, Evie H, and Georgiana C made up the team and won six out of the eleven races in the round-robin stage. They then had an exciting semi-final, which they won due to a mistake from the opposition. Their win put them in the final where they lost to their local team of Rutland Sailing Club (RSC). Given that the winning team are national champions, Oakham’s team’s performance was even more incredible.
Sailing & Adventurous Learning Coordinator, Ollie Hooper said, “Oakham improved as the day went on. Being the first school to finish and securing second place overall is impressive, especially for their first event as a new team. The year ahead holds great promise.”
Pupils of all ages can enjoy sailing at Oakham either as a competitive sport in their weekly games sessions or activities choice throughout the year.
