Megan Pascoe with the YOBs

The YOBs putting their boats down the drainpipe to see who’s went fastest

Last night I went up to Weymouth Sailing Club to help with Weymouth SC YOBs at one of their winter training sessions.

The making of model boats to put down the drainpipe.

It was quite messy but some very successful boats.

Other games included sailing bingo with sailing terms instead of numbers and sailing snakes and ladders where you had to zig zag up the board and then run downwind.

The aim was to avoid the capsizes and land on the gusts.

There was also an important talk on the dangers of sun to get the kids ready for sailing in the sun.

I knew that there were already a lot of yobs on Portland, are these more of them?

Successful boats did what?
Not the English I was taught.
