These are the optimist labels!

I was able to draw this because I had experienced sailing last year and this year at Okahu Bay with my class.

Manaiakalani Learner Questionnaire!😎

This afternoon I was able to fill out a Manaiakalani Learner Questionnaire. 

We answered a various amount of questions, some of the question were hard and some were easy. The question I found difficult was the Culture question (What culture do you most identify with). I enjoyed this questionnaire because it was very interesting and fun.

Don't Give away personal information!

Have you ever been Sailing?

On May 1st my classmates and I went sailing at Okahu Bay.

We came to school in warm clothes because it was a very cold morning. When almost
everyone was here we had prayer and lined up to go on the bus, I ran so that I could get
to the back of the bus. We drove past lots of houses and shops, we also drove past a
farm where we saw horses eating grass. After driving past all these places we finally
reached our destination. We were all nervous at the beginning, but we took a deep
breath and started walking to our instructor, Steve, Justin and J.R.

First we all put our bags away and we had to form a semi circle, we introduced
ourselves and had to tell them our favorite colour. Then everyone watched as they
taught us how to rig the Optimist (sailing boats).  After they gave us our instructions
we all went of to rig our own. My buddy and I went to set up a boat we made a few
mistakes but we finally made it .

After that, we had to line up shortest to tallest to get our wet suits, we also got a
buoancy vest. We all went out on the ocean, it was scary at first but I managed to
get used to it. We tried to follow all the other boats but we always went the wrong
direction. We managed to catch up then we saw the others and decided to swap partners.
It was funny at first but we kept moving around so the boat flipped. We got back on the
boats but I kept laughing and moving around so the boat flipped again.

Soon after all that, It was time for lunch, I ate a lot. My sister and my dad came.
She took pictures of the ocean and left me with her phone to take pictures with it,
I had to be careful with it.  Lunch was over and it was time to get back on the ocean.
It was time to be capsized, my buddy and I went to a spot no one was at, and
made ourselves fall out of the boat.

After that we all went back to shore and got changed into our clothes.
I had a lot of fun.

I’d like to thank the Lion foundation, Rotary, Volvo and Zhik for sponsoring the day.
