A group of 8 intrepid students and 2 brave teachers ventured on board The Island Trust pilot cutter Pegasus for a week's challenges.  We sailed all through the night and watched dawn rise as we approached St Mary's on The Isles of Scilly.  We jumped off the boat and swam off the coast of Cornwall and braved jellyfish on St Agnes. 

All the students honed their tea making skills as well as their navigation and knot tying.  There were lumpy night passages to brave and lots of steering.  Hoisting the sails took massive amounts of energy as this was an old-fashioned style boat with no winches to assist! 

We all had an amazing time - mostly due to the excellence, bravery, courage, resilience and, most of all, kindness of the students.  I'm sure this is a Challenge Week that will be remembered forever.
