'Jolie Brise' hosts Sixth Form artists

After a long summer season Jolie Brise is now back in her home port of the Hamble. Overall, more than 200 pupils have taken the opportunity to experience life aboard our world-famous Tall Ship this year, sailing almost 9,000 nautical miles and visiting 30 different ports throughout Norway, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, France and the UK.

On Sunday 18 September, the Jolie Brise set sail from the Hamble for Cowes on the Isle of Wight with a crew of Upper Sixth art students for a day of sketching and sailing.

This was the first in a series of al fresco drawing sessions planned by the art department. The day was a great success, a unique opportunity, and everyone found plenty of inspiration from our historic Tall Ship.

Autumn Sailing

Skipper Toby Marris is looking forward to welcoming a new generation of Dauntsey’s pupils when the Fourth Form and new Lower Sixth pupils have their first taste of life on board over the next two months.

For many Dauntseians this will be their first experience of sailing. Some may never wish to repeat the experience while for some it will be the start of a life-long passion for sailing. The important thing is that everyone will have had a go. ”

Toby Marris, Head of Sailing
