Gaelic honours for Duet and her crew

Leg 5 / Day 6

The crew fronm ORCEL , Hartlepool piped ashore at GreenockThe crew from ORCEL in Hartlepool were piped ashore in grand style on Thursday as Duet arrived in Greenock to be greeted by supporters of sail training in Scotland. This was one of the big moments for Duet as she celebrates her 100th birthday and more than 52 years in the service of young people from all backgrounds.

Visitors, many of whom remember Duet from their own youth, were able to go aboard Duet to find that little has changed aboard in all those years.

The Champion for Leg 5 Curly Mills with his wife Barbara presented certificates of achievement to the young people.

Thanks are due to Curly and Barbara, OYC Scotland and Emma Ellis who organised the event on behalf of The Cirdan Trust.
