Year 10 student Jaylen Simons said, “I found the Spirit of Bermuda trip to be a great experience. I learned how to trust others and myself with important tasks, how to be independent, and how to work really well in a group.

“We had a really fun time sailing 5 miles out from the coast of Bermuda and seeing the shore from afar [even though many were seasick] and I really loved staying up for night anchor-watch and seeing the stars. I would definitely recommend other student to go because it is an experience like no other.”
