Swing past the bow of a boat and skidding across the water; paddling a raft like a rowing team to victory in the raft race; performing a comedy skit in the usual College house play style; and covering the headsail while hanging over the water in a harness. These are just a few of the experiences I enjoyed on the Spirt of NZ.

I am Fraser Duggan and I was part of the Christ’s college team that went on the 5 days Spirit of NZ challenge in Auckland last year. Schools from around the country send teams of ten Year 10 students to compete against three other schools for the Spirit trophy.

It was great fun. You should give it a go if you get the chance.
