Since I spend so much of my year on the Pelican I thought that I should show you some of the things that go on onboard. Warning this is going to be a photo heavy post and does not describe a typical trip :p
When I joined this time the ship had just got back from the Tall Ships Races and had has quite a hard time of it so there was lots of maintenance work to be done.
This time off did give me a chance to catch up with my family on a day off I took a day trip to Totnes and savoured the greenery near my parents house, green is surprisingly hard to come by on the water
Having a knife to hand is very important when sailing and it is common for numerous people to have the same knives, so I branded two of the cadets knives one evening. I have yet to do this to my own ones!
We did a few day sails from Dartmouth and took some of the passengers out on the bowsprit. This is a photo of me and one of our lovely volunteers who was scared of climbing when he first started and now look at him right out at the end of the bowsprit 🙂
The seat on out RIB needed some repair work and they guys had great fun taking it apart
So many photos. I will show the rest of them in another post so as not to bombard you with too many :p
