Voyage of discovery through pages of a book


I HAVE just circumnavigated the world in the sail training ship Lord Nelson. I enjoyed the company of her two very able captains, Barbara Campbell, from Dunoon, and Chris Phillips, together with her professional crews.

The ship was sailed by these qualified sailors with around 1,000 crew, both able-bodied and disabled, sailing different ‘legs’ of the circumnavigation. All aboard (apart from me, the only passenger) were part of the crew sailing “Nellie”, and many had never sailed or even rowed a boat before setting foot on the gangway. We set sail from Southampton on Trafalgar Day, October 21, 2012, and did not return until September 26, 2014.
