Sunday 4th September 2011

We have just returned from a voyage to Piel Island and back with a group of adults who were very involved with the building of Tenacity when she was still at Bolton School.

It has been a great weekend with plenty of wind, and rain, yesterday giving us a super sail across the bay, overnight the wind conveniently dropped leaving the anchorage peaceful for the tired sailors on board.

Sunday was a very quiet day with the sea state for the trip back across the bay as flat as it has every been seen.  This allowed us to enjoy a leisurely sail back across the bay and into Glasson.

Hearing the stories from the volunteers of the trials and tribulations they encountered during the building of Tenacity reminded me of the magnitude of the whole project, and what a super resource Tenacity is for all those who get the chance to sail on her.

We look forward to inviting Bolton School Year 8 students back on board this autumn for more exciting voyages in the Morecambe bay area.
