Mayflower 400 Sailing Day

 
Mayflower 400 - Sailing Day
 
We were incredibly lucky to be invited onboard a flotilla of sailing ships.
 
Whilst onboard, the children were given the opportunity to be the helmsman, as well as working in teams to raise and lower the sails. We found out about local geography and the features of Plymouth Sound and surrounding waters as well as learning about nautical terms for direction and manoeuvres.
