Land Yachting on Wild Fridays!

Our Year 7s try land yachting for the new Wild Fridays initiative.

Ask any student to name something quintessentially Roedean and they will undoubtedly respond with ‘Roedean hair’, because it is always windy, to varying degrees, up on our clifftop and it is impossible to keep your hair neat! So, when someone says, ‘For Wild Fridays this week, the students will be doing Land Yachting on the sports field’, the immediate reaction is ‘What a perfect location!.’ Friday 8th October, however, ironically, must have been the stillest day Roedean has ever seen; there was a total and utter lack of wind, which provided for an amusing (and rather exhausting!) experience for the girls.

Instead of being wind-powered, zooming across the fields, the yachts were Roedean-powered, but luckily, everyone seemed to take great enjoyment in this! Well done to everyone who took part, for your positivity, enthusiasm and effort! Much fun was had!
