TNS461 17/06/2016  After a night at sea we arrived just off Taveuni Island ready to assess the pier and decide whether it was suitable to come alongside.

TN461 – 12/06/2016 We awoke this morning to an almost flat sea. The wind had dropped and we had spent the night traveling under motor power. We had left Mutuku Island behind. Several new islands were scattered around our horizon as we sailed on. While on the 8 – 12 midnight watch the clouds finally […]

TN461 – 11/06/2016 After 24 hours sailing out of Suva, we hit our first destination “Matuku”. It was by no means a smooth sail- many of us were left feeling a little under the weather!

LN896 08/06/2016 FS Watch here again. We left our anchorage at Rathlin Island in fog, we handed some sails and made slow progress towards Arran. A happy hour was spent cleaning the ship and the fog continued to obscure our view for most of the day. Lunch was followed by a sleep for most of us […]

LN896 05/06/2016 Dublin river festival in full flow. A morning spent smashing prejudice and challenging people’s miss conceptions through daring bravery and fantastic support.

LN896 07/06/2016 After an overnight motor, we anchored just after breakfast off the small but very friendly Rathlin Island.  The first local I met was called Michael and we had a good chat as he had previously sailed on both  Nellie and Tenacious – the JST world is a certainly a small one! The main […]

LN896 06/06/2016 An early start from Dublin may not have suited those choosing to have a few Guinnesses ashore the previous night, but low tide could not be missed and we were under way by 07:15. Flat calm seas ensured good views of the thousands of seabirds around Lambay Island with guillemots in huge numbers, […]

LN896 04/06/2016 After weeks of toiling away at sea, well probably not even forty eight hours away from the Scilly isles, our eyes were set upon the entrance of the bay, with crew aloft as well as below, preparing the ship for the glaring eyes of the public and the snap and clap of camera’s. […]
