The rain had passed but the wind persisted. The Upper Sixth BTEC students headed to Newton Ferrers and enjoyed the shelter of the harbour before heading out to the mouth of the Erme for a spot of surfing. After poking our noses out on to the sea we turned and headed back to a beach to look at contact tows and a to get to grips with edging. Great day.

We all went climbing at the Dewerstone this afternoon. Determined to get out on the rock and not hide indoors we braved the weather and got to grips with soggy holds and slippery surfaces.

We had even greater numbers for this weeks venture the the Dewerstone for a spot of climbing. The old hands remembered it all from last year and were instrumental in teaching those new to the club how to sort their harnesses out, put on their helmets correctly, tie in and belay. A fantastic evening out making the most of the Autumn sunshine.

Some people had been in boats before, some hadn't and some didn't end up spending much time in them at all. Nevertheless, everyone had a great time on Alder Lake, getting used to different boats and learning how not to fall in while throwing tennis balls at each other. Great day out

Cracking water levels in the river today for the first outing of the Discoverers Club. Some students were swept off their feet with the excitement (or maybe the flow of the water). In any case, we didn't manage to put anyone off so watch this space for next weeks instalment
