New Zealand Semester three wrapped up over the weekend and have gone off on their next adventure. Sailing was an excellent culmination of the semester. Students were able to apply everything they learned through out the semester to work together as a team and sail the boats.
Highlights from the section included sailing around Cape Jackson to into Queen Charlotte Sound, dolphins, bioluminescence, the instructors, living in close quarters and an all night anchor watch during strong winds.
Students all enjoyed the sailing section and were excited about the New Zealand keelboat sailing course being offered for the first time at NOLS NZ in November.
The semester was challenging but successful for everyone with students leaving with a higher level of self confidence and a clearer sense of direction in their lives.
We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors, encourage them to stay connected with nature and continue to make good decisions.
Thank you for choosing NOLS NZ
