“I took part in my first sailing voyage, departing from Canary Warf London to Portsmouth via the coastal town of Dartmouth. This voyage has been one of my best experiences so far meeting and working with a variety of people. I learnt many new skills and worked in a variety of sea conditions that tested people’s abilities. I took part in a leadership at sea course which allowed me to increase my knowledge in making passage plans, take working parties and taking charge in setting sails. This experience has opened many new doors for me for the future; thanks for this fantastic opportunity I was given.”
