Fantastic Time Had By All On
Isle of Wight
athletes and several coaches embarked on a three day trip to an outward bound
centre in the Isle of Wight for a weekend of activities, designed to celebrate
the end of winter training.
journey down to Southampton was pleasant followed by the hour car ferry trip
to Cowes with another half hour journey by coach to our destination, that of
Kingswood Educational Centre was the venue for the whole weekend, right by the
beach where the athletes participated in quad bikes, go karting, laser quest,
jacobs ladder, leap of faith, abseiling, rock climbing, zip wire and many
was some free time available which was spent on the beach - Whitcliff Bay
Beach on a beautiful sunny day in the Isle of Wight. Everyone was so
surprised at how sunny it could be in April, when it is usually quite cold in
the north of England.
activities were superb and all the athletes had a fantastic time on the
island, a first for many, with stunning views of the island being observed.
huge thank you to Shaun McGrath who spent over nine months planning the trip
and organising all the paperwork etc.
