The Trip on the Waka

On Friday most of the International class went to the harbor with some Girls High international students. The school bus took us from our school to the harbor. When we got on the waka we have a small welcome ceremony. It was interesting .We used the motor and went out into the harbor. After we were about 300m away from the harbor we started to use the sail to go sailing. I helped to pull up the front sail and lock up the rope which controlled the sail. When we need to turn around our boat I helped to control the front sail with my mates. It was hard to control is because the wind was so strong. That was an interesting experience for me. I will never forget this trip.
