LN901 08/08/2016 – This afternoon the wind has been strong at over 30 knots and the swell is coming from two different directions making the ship move with a corkscrewing motion.

TNS464 – 08/08/2016 Aft port watch checking in here from the bridge … just cleared Sydney Heads and running a bit further off the coast before turning right – Melbourne-bound.

LN901 – 07/08/2016 Aft starboard This morning we set sail from Ilhavios on Portugal’s west coast having spent a lovely couple of days enjoying the town’s hospitality and taking part in various activities that were laid on during the “Sea Festival”.

LN901 -04/08/2016 After spending about three quarters of the voyage motoring into strong headwinds, the captain set a course to allow us to put some sail up and we were immediately becalmed in a thick mist! Someone said that they thought we might see the pirates of the Caribbean but someone else said they thought […]

LN901 03/08/2016 – Aft starboard (Abi, Katy, Stephen, Josh, Greg, Jamsran, Bryony and Edu) checking in for our first blog.

LN901 02/08/2016 – “There’s not much to see except sea,” said Nursie, which on our course can only be a jolly good thing. A lumpy night and an early morning jaunt around a tanker the size of Cadiz did little to dampen high spirits during a truly happy happy hour when Captain Barbara was heard […]

LN901 01/08/2016 – Overnight the wind fell light for a few hours before picking up again from the NW, so that we enjoyed a great sail making 6 knots. The sun was shining, the sails all drawing and the crew happy. It was just a shame we were not sailing in the right direction. Following Happy […]

LN901 30/07/2016 – In Cadiz, there was plenty of activity, noise, exuberance and colour surrounding the Tall Ships’ event. Joining day was disjointed as several flights were delayed, meaning a few crew joined as late as midnight. However most crew were onboard mid-afternoon and, after brief introductions, they practiced bracing the yards. Those who had the […]

TNS463 26/07/2016 – As we sat on afternoon watch today we were joined by a rather large tanker that seemed to want to share our bit of water. Luckily, with the emptying of the freezers in preparation for Australian immigration, we had pliantly of ammunition to throw if the need to repel boarders arose. A […]
