HSBC Tall Ships Voyage

Ten pupils in Year 11 took part in the HSBC Voyage of Achievement on the Stavros S.Niarchos ship!

The ship set sail from Poole, Dorset and sailed via the Isle of Wight, Boulogne in France and then down the River Thames to Canary Wharf.

It was a fantastic opportunity for the pupils as during their time on board they were setting the sails, helping maintain the vessel, taking it in turns to keep watch, recording the sea and air temperatures and even had the chance to climb the masts.

As pupils sailed down the River Thames, they were met with lots of media coverage and there was even a live stream of them passing under London Bridge.

Why not visit the Tall Ships website to read some blog entries that pupil wrote whilst on the ship.
