Dauntsey’s Third Formers have completed a week of adventure as the culmination of their annual Moonrakers programme.
This summer we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of our Sailing Club with a programme of week-long cruises along the South Coast of England.
This summer marks the fiftieth anniversary of Moonrakers! Over the past fifty years the club has gone from strength-to-strength, giving all Third Formers the opportunity to undertake new adventures and experience the outdoors in a way that otherwise may not have been possible. As this year's Moonrakers head off on their camp at the end of June, they will no doubt take a moment to celebrate this milestone.
Adventure education has always been at the heart of Dauntsey’s...
In September Second Form pupil William took part in the South & South West Regional Junior Sailing Championships in Weymouth, sailing his Optimist (single-handed dinghy).
Dauntsey’s Adventure team has had the largest ever number of applications to secure a place in the School’s team for the infamous Devizes to Westminster (DW) canoe race, known as ‘The Canoeist’s Everest’.
On Saturday 3 October, a crew of Lower Sixth pupils piloted Jolie Brise in the ASTO Small Tall Ships Race in the Solent.
Our new Third Formers have had their first taste of the Dauntsey’s Moonrakers programme.
As lockdown measures were eased, Dauntsey’s were given the go ahead to run day trips for passengers on Jolie Brise.
