Sailing ‘Maybe’ around the Scottish Isles

During the summer holidays staff and students from Broadgreen International School embarked on a week of sailing the tall ship ‘Maybe’ around the Scottish Isles.
They had an intensive training course in sailing and all students received fantastic feedback from the skipper so much so that they were invited back again at the end of the summer holidays to sail the ship again from Liverpool to Falmouth!
Everyone had an action packed week with highlights including racing in the Clyde regatta from Greenock, around the Isle of Bute into Portavadie. This included sailing through the night on a four hourly watch duty.
The team from Broadgreen International School came first in their class and second overall.
They caught glimpses of seals and porpoises, attended a hog roast party at Portavadie marina for the opening of the Commonwealth Games.
Students also gave a live interview for BBC Breakfast  on board the Maybe and sailed up the river Clyde as part of the Commonwealth flotilla, berthing for the night alongside the BBC Scotland studios and attending the BBC at the Quay live music event.
