The December Girls' Holiday program had ideal sailing conditions.

A group of young women from MLC attended a 4 day basic sailing skills course which had them sailing  Access 303s, Ozi Optis, Pacers and 125s.

The course focused on having fun while improving capsize and recovery techniques as the weather was warm to hot.

Students were also taught how to rig, derig, launch and retrieve their boats.
