14/07/15 LN872 We have arrived in the fjords of Norway after a taxing voyage across the North Sea in a mixture of storms, rain and moments of being becalmed. We fought to continue to be in the race until the last moment but as the weather continued to turn against us it made the captain […]

13/07/15 LN782 After all the excitement of the dolphins and whales the excitement continued with a traditional Sunday dinner including Yorkshire Puddings!

14/07/15 TNS443 After delicious pizza in the lower mess with the whole crew, it was time to settle in to the comfy recesses of the boat while another lucky watch got the drizzle and fog of the 12-4pm watch. We chatted together and played a few rounds of cards as the rain began to ease off. After […]

13/07/15 TNS443 After a slightly delayed start due to engineering problems, we were finally away. Unfortunately, the wind was not blowing in the right direction for Weymouth, and we therefore motored to our anchor point off Oostende.

12/07/15 TNS443 Today has been hot and sunny, and, after more briefings, climbs, evac. drills etc., the crew have had more time to explore Brugge. Lots of chocolate and fabulous beers, and sights before wandering back to our cosy cabins.

12/07/15 LN872 Yesterday was really exciting because we had our first glimpse of sunshine, with the miracle of blue sky surrounding us. This then resulted in everyone quickly putting on shorts and sunnies! Probably the only chance we’ll get to wear them as it is now back to rain, rain and more rain. On the […]

12/07/15 LN872 The ship awoke to a stormy sea yesterday. Still in the reach of St.Kilda’s, athough making way slowly. The ongoing watch was enthusiastic to the morning’s watch ahead, looking forward to keeping spirits high with lots of singing and the creation of the ’12 day’s of sailing’ song. The wind picked up and […]

09/07/15 LN872 We are becalmed off St Kilda but we had a good nights sleep after our film night (Shelock Holmes). Lots of gannets, fulmars, great skuas, a few puffins and even a minke whale (alledgedly) have been sighted. Voyage crew took advantage of the calm sea to have a good happy hour and lifejacket […]

08/07/15 LN872 Yesterday’s excitement started during dinner, but was nothing to do with the food (which was excellent as always – never upset the chef!!). There was a call on the tannoy for the permanent crew to go on deck to hand (take in) the Royals. Then Richard appeared in the lower mess, saying we […]

07/07/15 LN872 Dave our resident chef prepared for our evening meal a delicious roast lamb dinner, which after a hard day of setting sails, the whole crew devoured quickly leaving the whole crew content and tired! This was ok for some but for others about to go on watch it was a wet and cold […]

07/07/15 TNS442 It’s a beautiful day here in Scheveningen. The sun is glinting on the masts and yards and the trawlers are racing to the fish market with their catch as the crew are dragged from deep slumber by a cheery Peter at 6.30 am (BST) but now we are GMT + 2hours! After breakfast […]
