Post 16 students return from Tall Ships Adventure
During May half term, Post 16 students Keren and Morgan spent a week living and working on the Stavros S Niarchos. In partnership with KTS Academy, they travelled to Portsmouth where they boarded the tall ship. They were both scared but excited about this exciting adventure; however they both really enjoyed it and said they would recommend it to anyone, even though they were slightly sea sick.
They were provided with training and had to complete a number of different duties including: delivering food, washing pots, climbing up the sails and letting them down, bracing stations and helming the boat.
Keren and Morgan told us their favourite parts…
“Climbing up the masts.” – Morgan
“Meeting new people.” – Keren
… and their worst…
“The food – one day I had beans on toast and rice.” – Morgan
“On watch, on the bridge, as it was so cold and raining.” – Keren
They summed up their experiences in one word…
“Excellent!” – Keren
“Brilliant!” – Morgan
