As part of their Olympic legacy, Stowmarket Middle School pupils took part in their latest sports sailing day.

The students’ most recent visit was to Lackford Lakes, near Bury St Edmunds, to try sailing with St Edmundsbury Sailing and Canoeing Association.

More than 40 pupils enjoyed a two-hour session on the lake and experienced what it was like to handle a dinghy in either an Optimist or a Topper as well being shown the ropes on a Wayfarer with an experienced club member.
