Aft Superstar Starboard Watch Reporting at sunset off the isle of Sark.
After the crew photograph in St. Malo, the troops eagerly tripped into the walled town to investigate the cafes, shops and crepe suzettes. Fearless Phil the intrepid aft starboard WL performed an undercover recognisance mission into the depths of the hospitality domains in search of suitable eatable establishment. Once complete we re-grouped at the GCHQLN for a full de-brief and route plans for the evening. Many VC dug tunnels and sent scouts ahead to secure the area ‘Chateaubriand’ in the shadow of the great ancient walls where the whole team proceeded to empty the stores of the unprepared French whilst pouring away their precious wines! After the raucous evening we made our escape towards the town gates which the townsfolk had idly left ajar – however we were well prepared and had a waiting get away ship in the Harbour! AH HA!!
When we all woke up it was another day – TODAY! And after a speedy ‘petit dejuner’ we did assisted climbs in the gazing eyes of a gang of envious onlookers. Once more the magic of the JST shines out. As our wheelchair users were raise aloft by those on the deck cameras clicked and everyone was in awe of the moment.
After the Pilotage, Lock and Lunch we sailed again, once more to the open sea. And now I write to you from the bridge of the Aft Starboard watch with the Isle of Sark to our left and the whole English Channel to explore. We shall keep a watchful eye on the setting sun and be in awe of the clear night sky as it appears, safe in the knowledge that everyone aboard Lord Nelson is having a great week amongst new found friends and expectant of the new day ahead and another fantastic part of our adventure!
