Sailing .... Have a Go! - Recount Writing

The day of Sailing had finally arrived. We were lucky to receive this grant of having two days of sailing. Since the sailing activity could only take up to 12 people, my class was split into two groups. Fortunately I was in the first group. We had 3 hours of straight sailing. The thought of it sent shivers down my spine.

“Is everyone here Room 7 ?” inquired  Mrs Tui. “ No not everyone has arrived” I answered .   Horror was painted onto her face. “ We will be going very soon!” cried Mrs Tui. I was as worried as a convicted murderer.  “ Everyone hop into the car” announced  Mrs Tui. I slowly dragged myself  into the car, and rolled away.

“I can’t wait!” yelled Seuati. I smiled brightly pretending to act happy. Judging by his tone he seemed somewhat animated. “Whoa these boats are really small!” I thought to myself. For the half a  hour we got prepared and learned about the yachts. Once we had finished we released the yachts into the water and headed off. “ Hold on Aurora, Be careful!” I shrieked.

“Look, Justin’s boat flipped over!” I wailed. We all laughed in response of the incident. “Jump in Sonya” urged Aurora. I was getting ready to run away. “ Come it’s not too bad!”  she squealed with  frustration. I slowing plodded myself on the platform. Off I went. The wind wasn't too heavy. I was eager to reach the deadline, so I went as fast as I could.

“I think that I am going to sink” I thought as I gradually continue. “ I have to get this water out of my boat immediately” I thought to myself. I sigh heavily wishing I’d went with Aurora. “ You have to get the water out as fast as you can!” shouted Reuben as I drifted off. I could feel my face slowly shutting down. “You can do this!” I tried my best to be strong and concentrate . “ You made it!” yelled Aurora as I pulled onto the beach.

Before we could have our lunch, we had to get changed. After getting changed we had our lunch. All of the Sailing had made me ravenous.  “ I wish we could stay for longer” I sighed as we drove off.
