School party from Verona comes to visit!
Monday, May 18 2015
A school group of 30 juniors in the first grade of Leonardo da Vinci middle school spent a day with us. They enjoyed a beautiful bike ride to visit Malcesine and its castle and catamaran and dinghy sailing!
The sun and the wind made for an exciting day and none hesitated to enjoy the speed and thrills from high-speed catamarans with water spraying over everyone as the boats bounced over the waves. Everyone had a try at steering the boats and many also used the trapezes to experience the excitement of crewing modern dinghies and catamarans! Some adrenaline and lots of laughter accompanied the trips, watched over by their school staff. The day ended with the students singing a song in English ("If you're happy and you know it ....") !
A beautiful day successful thanks to Prof.ssa Zampieri (Giuly to us) who accompanied the school group, organized everyone and helped out with launching and recovery as well as taking the photographs above. Thanks also to the kids for joining in so enthusiastically and making our job easy!
Thanks to the Leonardo da Vinci School of Verona for the wonderful day!
