On Monday 19th of September P5 and 7 from Portpatrick Primary went on a residential trip to Carlingwark Outdoor Activity Centre.

Canoeing, sailing and kayaking were the activities for the day.

Our instructor for canoeing was Alex. After Alex had showed us how to steer and everything else we needed to know, we split into little groups and Alex set a certain destination.

We had to steer to an island in the middle of the loch.

The group paddled further into the loch in the kayaks and played a game of tag.

In the morning we got ready for sailing.

We sailed on boats called ‘Fun Boats’.
