Tall Ships Programme

During September, Lily took part in the Tall Ships Programme. She sailed from Portsmouth via the Isle of Man and then returned to Liverpool.  Lily would recommend anyone apply for this programme as she met lots of new people and went to places she would not have travelled to normally.

The tall ships do have engines but the majority of her journey was powered by the wind via the many sails. Lily and her team on board shared responsibility for many tasks including putting the sails up and making meals for the teams on board. Whilst onboard, Lily saw a lot of wildlife including a pod of dolphins and many seals. Lily really enjoyed this experience and urges other people to apply for this annual event.
