Going Sailing!

On a cloudy slightly sunny day, we were getting ready to go sailing. I was so excited but so nervous, we were going to Kohimarama Beach. Since the activity only takes 12 people, we were split up into 2 groups. Group one was the first one to go, they went at 9 in the morning and came back at 12 in the noon. I was in the second group, the second group was the last one to go, we went at 12 in the noon and finished at 3 in the afternoon.

“Is everybody ready?” Questioned Mrs Tui. “Yes!” We all said in union. Group 2 went to room 6 while group one was getting ready to go sailing. While in room 6... “Hurry up time, be faster!” I thought in my head, I was getting really impatient. I kept on looking at the time and counting down how many minutes until we can go. Just after a few minutes after prayers, Mrs. Genie randomly walked in. “Are we going?” I questioned myself. “Okay room 6, go and carry on with your work and the room 7’s, go with Mrs. Genie.” I heard Mrs. Tui. I was so enthusiastic. 

“Get in the van guys.” Commented Mrs. Genie. We went in the van. “My seat belt! I don’t have a seat belt!” I half whispered half shouted. “Here it is.” Lupe remarked. “Thanks.” I replied. We were on our way to go to Kohimarama Beach.

We arrived at Kohimarama Beach, there we saw 5 sailing boats. After seeing the sailing boats, I got nervous. I wanted to run away. Then I heard someone screaming my name. “Ierei!” Sonya yelled, I ran up to her and gave her a huge hug, “Ierei!” Aurora shouted, “Yay!” I yelled, I hugged Aurora really tightly. 

After a few minutes of organising, group one was leaving. It was our turn, I felt butterflies forming in my stomach. Later on we were in our boats, since I was by myself I went with Oscar and the instructor in the motorboat, some point during the day, I went to swap places with Rachel, while I was getting off the boat... “Splash!” I fell in the water, all I could hear was laughter, I was laughing from embarrassment. I finally got in the sailing boat with my new partner which was Alecia.

During the day, Alecia and I were getting good at sailing. We sailed all the way to the shore because we were finishing up. When we arrived at the shore I was super exhausted, I was breathing heavily. We were packing up the sail boats, the girls went to change in the trailer while the boys got changed at the back of the balcony.

After a long tiring day, we went back home. What a wonderful experience!

Kiwi Sport - Touch Reflection

Today for touch it was the couch’s last day, we are having a different couch next week.
We have some warm-ups and drills so that we can use them for our game in the following week. The more we played the more fun we had and more competitive the people get.
