TNS446 04/08/15 We have caused quite a stir in St Malo as many have come to see our tall ship and take photos, and stand to watch the assisted climbs this morning, with wheelchairs hoisted aloft, and ropes on harnesses for those climbing, and returning to deck to a round of applause, or watch Captain […]

01/08/15 LN874 Two mornings ago, the FP watch was called early to help the previous watch take in some sails and tighten the ropes due to strengthening winds and sea. It was a busy watch as there were many ships around and some were crossing past Nelly. Even with three sails set, we were still […]

30/07/15 LN874 Day 4 We are currently in a centre of low pressure with pretty much no wind. Last night was nice and quiet, with beautiful stars and a full moon; however there was not much wind. In fact, at one point around 11pm, we were becalmed and started to drift backwards! Not ideal when […]

29/07/15 TNS445 Has been a breezy sail to say the least! Gale force winds in the channel so we stayed in home waters seeking shelter from the Isle of Wight. Have had a good sail south today around the island & now motoring towards Swanage Bay to anchor overnight. Heavy seas but a happy crew. We’ll just pretend […]

29/07/15 LN875 Events following the crossing of start line: The hours after the ships crossed the starting line, and the race began, it became clear that there are many roads to Rome, and just as many opinions on which one is the fastest. Some ships turned southwest for the next checkpoint straight away after the […]

28/07/15 LN875 Most people arrived during Monday afternoon- although a few had serious troubles with their flights & their luggage. We spent the afternoon on safety briefings, harness fittings, & “evacuation” drill. After dinner, many people went ashore to sample the delights of Kristiansand; the town was buzzing with excitement with approximately 80 boats moored […]

LN874 28/07/15 Yet again just as in port after an excellent voyage, JST has demonstrated the meaninglessness of disability as a barrier in society. This week Norway was destination of choice. The highlight of the trip was sailing through the fjords, which benefited both our eyes and thoughts. As was recently pointed out to me, the tendency to […]
