TPA Sailing Trip – Day 2

TPA Sailing Trip – Day 2

With the changing forecast, we started our day in Cowes Yacht Haven, waking up to cooked breakfast courtesy of Red watch (Gaby, Richard, Ben and Andreea) and then got on with the sail training for the morning. The crew learned how to use the winches, pull the lines, clean the ship and plan the meals for the day before we left for a sailing day in the Solent.

“It’s fun and scary all at once, but becoming friends with people I’ve never really talked to before has been really good.”- Richard

Harry took the helm as we left the marina and took us out into the Solent, everyone else got busy raising sails, pulling ropes and learning how to turn the boat, set the sails and trim them as we moved around tankers, sailing yachts and other ships using the water. The crew found the waves quite challenging, feeling a seasick, but also trying to cook lunch with Blue watch (Erin, Jonas, Harry and Jack) in heavy seas, trying to balance whilst pulling the ropes and then eating lunch at quite an angle!  They managed brilliantly in the end, sailing for the day before heading back into Cowes for dinner and a Green watch (Holly, Thomas, Adina and Ricky) fajita bonanza!

“Best advice to stop feeling sick is definitely don’t forget your seasickness tablets, look at the horizon, stay nice and warm, keep drinking and eating and enjoy life on board!!” – Andreea.

We’re just in clean up mode after dinner and planning games and chill time later after a fun day at sea. Time to plan the next stage of our adventure!!
