The quality standards we have come to expect from Solent Skills Quest a superb event
for over 2,000 pupils. From primary and secondary schools who were able to see employers
and education providers all in one place with plenty to see and do. Engineering your
future (EYF) hosted its now familiar sail boats challenge which was as popular as
ever. We were on a short turn around of time but this seemed to only add to the excitement
for the pupils involved, it is a reflection on them and their teachers that every
team completed and raced a boat. The wind was quite changeable and results varied
enormously. To visit the Skills Festival website click on the image.
As an added bonus we were able to get a quick tour of the Waverley Paddle Steamer
that was alongside the sailing pond all day. A fascinating ship to explore, click
