“I enjoyed meeting new people who had gone through the same thing, because they were all really nice. I didn’t like leaving! I learnt that I LOVE sailing!! And I learnt 2 types of knots. I made loads of friends and learnt how to sail, and now I’m going on another course. I would love to be involved in the future; it was the best week of my life!!!!! Thank you so much for letting me come, I enjoyed it very VERY much!!!”

“We have done so much this week, barbeques, water fights, football, and sailing! We’ve had loads of fun. I love boats, and it has been exciting to learn from such a great crew. I couldn’t pick the best thing about this week, although meeting Ellen was awesome! I would come back any day!”
