CCF Sailing Trip to Portsmouth

Fifteen girls from CLSG and three boys from City of London School have taken part in a field trip to Portsmouth this month.

The cadets stayed on four yachts and had to plan a menu, navigate and sail the boats to a range of harbours and anchorages. The group stayed alongside HMS Bristol on the Friday evening and had a brief tour of an active warship.
On the Saturday, they navigated the East and West Solent, arriving at Lymington with two yachts anchoring in Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight for lunch. An unscheduled firework display was enjoyed in the marina whilst the groups cooked dinner. On the Sunday, the yachts stopped at Cowes for a lunch with ice cream stop, before returning back to the base and the return home.
