Arrived in Poole harbour yesterday about 11am. Various chores undertaken and assisted climbs achieved. After lunch all enjoyed Happy Hour! Free time followed where people went ashore and some shopped. Most of the crew enjoyed their evening meal in various local establishments followed by sea shanties in the Mess. Calm night in harbour appreciated by all before rising to blue sky and sunshine. Many crew experienced climbing out on the yards before crew photographs before leaving harbour at 10.30. Soon undersail with 7 sails billowing out beautifully in the sunshine, all agreed this is how it should be.
