LN904 28/08/2016 – We arrived on-board and were shown our bunks and given our watch-cards and oilskins. Evacuation drill was one of the first things we carried out. Then those who wished to were able to climb the rigging and go out on the yards.

After a hearty dinner of chicken followed by bread and butter pudding we had the chance to go ashore and join the festival atmosphere of the “Tall Ships” gathering in Blyth. There was much music and entertainment and many stood on the bridge to watch an amazing firework display at 21:00.
