Back in October 2013, Truro School welcomed former pupil and Olympic sailor, Ben Ainslie, to officially open our brand new Sports Centre. Staff and pupils from both schools joined together to hear about the sport that has become synonymous with his name:
“Sailing brings with it a sense of freedom that you just can’t experience any other way,” he said. “I urge you all to try it, at least once.”
Ben’s visit has left the whole school community inspired and excited for the world of opportunities that the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre offers.
You can see a video of his visit, created by Truro School Teacher Mark Huckle.
