Currently we have three former pupils sailing on the British Team, two of which competed in the 2020 (2021) Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
Sailing provides a number of benefits in terms of physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as the opportunity to foster teamwork and leadership.
In 2016 we introduced sailing into the school curriculum. The lessons are led by our Head of Adventure and Service on our very own fleet of Lomond School dinghies and the pupils work towards their RYA Youth Stages. Through sailing, self-esteem and confidence are promoted and most importantly, the pupils will learn a lifelong skill whilst having fun!
Being on the water offers challenge and enjoyment in a stimulating and engaging way and we are fortunate to be able to take advantage of our ideal location on the Firth of Clyde. We are particularly excited about the growing numbers of young people involved in sailing throughout the school and the talent that is being fostered.
We are fortunate to have three highly successful former pupils competing in the field of sailing. Anna Burnet, Charlotte Dobson and Lorenzo Chiavarini are on the British Sailing Team, with both Anna and Charlotte forming part of the 2020 (2021) Tokyo Olympic sailing squad. Anna Burnet and team-mate, John Gimson, placed second in the Nacra 17 category winning a silver medal for team GB in Tokyo. The school is incredibly proud and grateful to all three for agreeing to be patrons of sailing at Lomond School and we hope their involvement will help to inspire our pupils and promote opportunities in sport.
