Hi Caroline
I hope you had a good weekend.
I spoke to you last week regarding the blog you had written for your voyage on Tenacious on the ship’s laptop.
I asked the ship if they could send it to us, and I’m so sorry to let you know but there’s been a problem with the machine and they haven’t been saved.  They also weren’t able to print a hard copy either as paper supplies on board are low.
Please accept my apologies that we weren’t able to to publish it on our website and send a copy to you.
If I can be of any further help please let me know.

So my report is done from my memory!


Well I went up the rigging. With support from the wonderful Micheal (I know that is not how you spell his name) and the tremendous Hannah and Micheal Fourman on my rope.

It was actually easier than I thought it would be. One foot after the other you can only go up. I rationalised it by saying to myself. It would not look good if they lost someone overboard.

The view was great. It wasn’t that cold even although I am a bit over wrapped up. Being used to the frozen north.

This gave me the biggest boost to the confidence I think I never had. I have come back home, I’m looking for a new job!

Tenacious London To Portsmouth

On that night watch Ben and our watch we had to set a sail! Which wasn’t easy as we hadn’t even been up that end of the ship.

The lift which I was using by this time, decided to attack me by nocking me on the head.

The sail got changed we pulled on ropes although we had no idea what we were doing. Ben did an excellent job quietly, Anyway 12 o’clock came and went and the new watch came on. We all went to bed!

End of first day.
