LNDS070516 07/05/2016 My day sail on the Lord Nelson. By Seb Trezise I was lucky enough to be given a day on board Lord Nelson by the charity that I work for called Enable Me. This was kindly donated to Enable Me by Littlehampton Rotary Club. I was picked up along with the other 3 […]

TNS460 06/05/2016 Leaving Tahiti At sea at last – a full ship with most of us over jet lag and having enjoyed the variable weather and beautiful scenery of Tahiti and Moor’ea – the latter being particularly stunning both under the water and in the mountains. Yesterday we loaded stores in the sun so had […]

LN895a 05/05/2016 A magical day in the Solent, starting with dawn in Sandown Bay at the eastern end of the Isle of Wight. Although we could smell the ice cream we couldn’t get to it, but a hearty full English breakfast did the trick. And just as well, because within minutes we were heaving and […]

LN895a 04/05/2016 We’re in Sandown Bay at sunset (Wednesday evening) and have just anchored half a mile off the pier to enjoy sundowners after a slow but delightful sail round the eastern end of the Isle of Wight. Yesterday, we motored down Southampton water to anchor off St Helen’s Fort overnight. This morning, Captain Simon  […]

LN895 30/04/2016 I didn’t know what to expect coming on this trip. However, it has exceeded my expectations. The permanent crew were brilliant, friendly and willing to help and explain things if needed. The voyage crew were of different ages and abilities, but all were catered for. This is truly a trip for everyone. Being […]

LN985 28/04/2016 After a rocky night we woke up today in excitement for today’s visit to a small island called Brehat (Isle de Brehat, near Paimpol). Once the captain received the go ahead from the port (coastguard) we dropped anchor and readied the tender (Doti) boats. The day started pretty cloudy but it turned out […]

LN895 28/04/2016 After a quiet night sailing along the French coast we reached St Malo in sunshine and blue skies, much appreciated after the weather we had endured previously. Around 0930 the pilot came aboard and we handed all the sails. We were the duty watch for entering the lock, aided by the nonchalant lock workers. […]

TNS459 28/04/201 Forward Port Tahiti – Rai’tea – Tahiti Sadly this short voyage is coming to an end. After several days of heavy rain the voyage crew joined us on a beautiful Tahitian morning. We left Pape’ete accompanied by dolphins. What a great send off. We then spent a glorious afternoon sailing slowly (drifting) along […]

TNS458 22/04/2016 Aft Starboard Farewell TNS 458….. Well here we are finally in Tahiti. The place of dreams and legends has finally become reality. After days of empty ocean and peaceful islands we’ve quickly adjusted to the shock of a busy city and the trappings of civilisation. We have a perfect berth, right slap bang […]

TNS458 14/04/2016 Aft Starboard Paradise Found…!! Wow. Bora Bora. So good they named it twice. Even better than the picture postcards. Daybreak found us just off the island. Towering volcanic rock, fringed with sugar white beaches, palm trees and surf from the surrounding reefs. The entrance into the lagoon is breath-taking – into azure waters […]

TNS458 11/04/2016 Hello all from us on another fine day on Tenacious, apart from the tropical deluge we had to finish our watch last night. The winds speed trebled and the heavens opened just in time to thoroughly soak us just as we handed the main royal. Today we have been skirting the atoll of […]

TNS458 10/04/2016 (Day 42) Greetings from Aft Port. In our last blog I promised ‘more sailing news’, so here we are: although we have all the square sails set, we are only trundling along at about 3 knots (think walking speed), the wind having dropped very considerably. The weather is hot (33 degrees) and sunny, […]
