04/08/2012 - Lord Nelson
Day 1: Location: Porto, Portugal; Weather: Cloudy but warm, especially during the day Today was the first day onboard the Lord Nelson, one of the most amazing tall ships of the world.
Everybody arrived safely at the ship and we were introduced to the captain and the rest of the crew. We also got divided into watches and met our watch leaders. After a great dinner we went to the quayside and did two games that helped us know more about each other, we did a sort of name game and we talked in pairs about ourselves; then one of us had to recount what we learned about our partner. It was fun.
In the morning I still had to do the gangway watch from 4am to 6 am, it was hard but fun registering the logbook and making rounds to look for the mooring lines, and potential fire or somebody getting into the ship... none of the above happened.
