Sailing Along in 2015

The ever growing group of Izivungungu sailing students are featuring creditably alongside

their colleagues from the elite clubs and schools.Several of them were invited to participate

in the World Mirror Championships. They triumphed at the Inter-Schools Regatta at Zandvlei

and also at the 24hourGrand Slam and were prominent in the South African Navy Festival

Parade. Greater emphasis has also been placed on boat-building and repairs, such that skills

development includes woodwork, metalwork, fibreglass techniques and paintspraying.

This, together with a system of liaising with selected Teachers from the various schools is helping to

ensure that all students will be better equipped for life after school, with improved academic results

and employable skills.
