TNS449 06/09/15 Today we had breakfast early because we were on watch it was a yummy sausage, scrambled egg and mushrooms. Nothing overly interesting happened on watch apart from passing a large wind farm. Later in the day we braced some sails but after a while we realised this was pointless because there was no […]

TNS449 05/09/15 Busy day firstly getting ready to leave Dunkirk and then getting through the lock and out into the open sea. Having had luck with the wind on the way across we had the wind wrong all day. Amazing how busy the Channel is with everyone on the bridge working hard to get us […]

LN878 04/09/15 A quick update! We are motoring towards our berth at Great Yarmouth, with the pilot on board and the fenders ready! The lines men are ahead of us in the Dotti boat, and we are being waved at from the river sides. Holland was a great success, with amazing seafood lunch venues close […]

TNS449 04/09/15 We arrived in Dunkerque last night as it got dark. In the harbour we went into a huge lock and were brought up to the level so that we could enter the canal. Our berth is alongside a car park quite close to the town centre. Some of the crew immediately went ashore […]

LN878 03/09/15 Hello from Lord Nelson, alongside in Scheveningen ….easy for you to say!…a seaside town at the entrance to the Hague. This is a roundabout way for Voyagers on LN878 to get from Canary Wharf to Great Yarmouth. We welcomed the new Voyage crew aboard on Sunday30th, in unsettled showery weather. They were soon in […]

TNS449 03/09/15 A delightful Lentil soup and a roll for lunch with an array of various cheeses was enjoyed by all and the occasional squirt of Chilli sauce for some followed by a few members of the watch getting their heads down to recover from the early shift the night before. With smug faces at […]

TNS449 02/09/15  We started the day nice and early (a bit too early for Chloe) and had breakfast which was sausages, poached egg and mushrooms. After stuffing ourselves silly we enjoyed the morning, it was a bit of a chilly start but it soon warmed up and we set the sails in the sunshine. We […]

30/08/15 TNS448 Having left Dartmouth at 1900 last night we turned East and travelled on a calm sea in light winds that were almost completely against us. By morning we were well on the way and it was decided that we would sail around the South of the Isle of Wight. Callum proved his worth […]

29/08/15 TNS448 The air display the previous evening treated us to sights of exciting machines – Spitfire, Hurricane, Swordfish, Red Arrows, stunt ‘planes, as well as [possibly] a Zero and a brilliant close up demonstration of A/S rescue by a Sea King. Some of the younger crew are commendably well-informed about vintage ‘planes – yay […]

TNS448 28/08/15 Today we moored in Dartmouth very close to HMS Monmouth which was moored for the regatta. A large portion of the voyage crew went into Dartmouth to sample the shops and regatta ambience. We look forward to the red arrows flypast later today and will probably stay moored to our buoy for much […]

27/08/15 TNS448 Sea sickness was still at its peak; with several crew members unable to get out of their bunks.. After a full recovery it as all hands to the deck to finally set the sails. Despite it being hard work singing and the thought of food got everyone through. As the sails went up […]

TNS448 26/08/15 The day began with a delicious breakfast which lightened everyone’s mood. This was ironically followed by ‘Happy Hour’ where all the crew cleaned the ship, occasionally being attacked by mops! Following this, we were at last given the news that we would finally be leaving Poole at half past one that afternoon. While […]
