Leg 2 / Day 6
Jamie . . .I had a great night last night. We were celebrating the 100th birthday of the Duet sailing boat. I met some realy kind and fantastic people. I would love to say thank you to Dawn and Paul especially for helping us get through this trip. I’d like to say a very big thank you to the Barnados Leaving Care for getting the funding for this trip and
a very big thank you to Christopher Courtauld for letting us sail and look after his very lovely and precious lady for our leg.
Dominic . . . I thought last night was a brilliant night and i will be sad to be leaving the Duet today and will miss her alot
Tumezghi . . . It was fantastic night and i will miss her a lot and hope i will sail again with her soon!!!
Chris . . .I had a brilliant night last night. I would like to say thank you to Leaving Care and Dawn and Paul, the crew for this leg and I will certainly keep this memorable trip forever
How did Cynthia get her bruise? - add your theory as a comment!!
Cynthia. . . As a Team Leader it has been a privilege to experience a unique sailing and living experience with the young people. The sailing was very demanding for us all as was the communual living.
The presentation and reception was also a very positive evening for the young people who were fantastic with the local dignitaries and other young people visiting the boat prior to their own trip in a few weeks time.
I have to confess that I am looking forward to a hot bath tonight. I have great admiration for our Skipper Dawn and the Mate Paul who brought us through the Wash with great expertise and kept us safe arriving in Scarborough unscathed. My fantastic bruises were aquired in Scarborough.
Michelle . . .As a team leader I was very priveldged to have been part of this wonderful Tall Ship sailing experience. The young people have been great and grown both practially and emotionally and have all individually shone!!!
Dawn and Paul’s passion for their job shines through and without them the experience would not be possible… so thank you… you kept us all very safe and knew best when sea sickness arrived!!! even though I did not think so at the time!!!.
Thanks also to Amy Campbell the Champion for our Leg. You are an inspiration!!
Last night’s hand over of the battern was a truly a great evening , the young people did the meeting and greeting and did us proud, I wish the next group much luck… You will love it!
P.S from Dawn….New Game!! guess how Cynthia got her amazing technicolour bruise????
