Tall Ships Race: July 2005

When I was doing my Gold Duke of Edinburgh award, I decided to do my residential aboard the Morning Star of Revelation and join in the Tall Ships Races 2005.

This was the first (and so far only) time I had been sailing and it was a fantastic experience.

I took part in the first race – Waterford, Ireland to Cherbourg-Octeville, France. If memory serves me right, this took five days. I joined in all the activities necessary in sailing, from joining the rota and doing my three-hour stint at steering to cooking dinner in the galley.

Looking back at the list of 2005 winners is bringing back memories of some stunning ships that I had the privilege of racing alongside and, of course, photographing.
