Mon 18 – Fri 22 September

Entry Eight 

Sailing to Weymouth was so choppy. It felt terrifying because the whole boat tipped right or left. At times it felt like we were broaching into the colossal great blue sea. The trip was around five – seven hours long. When we arrived we went to the beach. Now that felt awesome and we found an inflatable four inch ball. Happily we played volleyball(on the beach) and I ran into a pole whilst I had sand in my eyes!

Entry Seven 

Today was good because we had more fun then we actually got through out the two days and more life experiments and why it was just good because I literally felt  like I was going to die that means I felt so sick but over then that it was amazing really amazing oh and yes the volibal it was so soft ohhh yeah but freezing water that’s it ( :

So today was ok but things happened that I didn’t want to happen like how I didn’t feel very well because the sea was very strong and the boat was tilted and that is what made me feel bad and then I fell asleep but ben and banana( andrew) kept on waking me up and so that is my day and then we had fish and chips.

Entry Three

It’s been a long first day, a 4 hour drive down to our new home for the week. We climbed aboard and got to grips with the boat. After leaving Gunwharf Quays we learnt a few knots and hitches, enabling us to tie the fenders up when we moored later. On the way out of the port we saw the Navy’s new aircraft carrier, The Queen Elizabeth. We then had a short ride over to Cowes where we have moored for the night. Port watch made a fabulous curry for dinner and we’re hopefully off to Poole in the morning.

Entry Two
