The day of BIG waves

Today we were woken up at 6:45 in the morning. We set off from Glasson dock at 7:30 am and went in the lock while we waited in there we had a bacon butty for part 2 of breakfast. We put the sails up and switched the engine off, as we left the Lune Channel and met the open sea. We sailed for about two hours before Emily threw up. Thankfully she was the only one to be sick on the whole journey, but everyone else apart from Emma felt a bit queasy. The waves were really big and choppy. Steph got a go at steering but decided to stop after a while as she was feeling sick. We carried on sailing through the big waves until we reached Peil Island.
We had sandwiches and soup for lunch and then we made some scones. They tasted good. After that the aft team made dinner whilst the other team got the dingy ready to go to the island. When we got to the island we saw some pigs they squealed as we walked up to them. Then we played hide and seek and Natalie won. We walked around the old castle and Laura fell down a rabbit hole but she didn’t end up in Wonderland. Then we came back to the boat and ate dinner. The skipper dropped a piece of pasta in Emma’s welly, which didn’t go down well with Emma.
