Tall Ships 2018 - Day 3

Wednesday was such an action-packed day that we didn't have time to write the blog until the following morning

Dylan and Chloe made bacon sandwiches in our tiny kitchen before we sailed out of Beaulieu. After we came out of Beaulieu River, we set the sails (even though there was not much wind) so we needed help from the engines. We reached around 7-8 knots. Before approaching Studlands Bay, we saw the Old Harry rocks and his wife (well what was left of her).

We arrived at Studlands Bay. The beach was lovely, golden sand and blue water with a never-ending view of trees in the New Forest. Everybody went swimming together even though Chloe, Alannah and Jordan wouldn't go past the sea weed due to the feeling between our toes. After getting used to the sea weed, Jordan, Alannah and Francesca helped Chloe to become a stronger swimmer. We all went for a walk, down to the rocks, where we saw beautiful mini fish, little shrimps and nasty crabs that liked to try to eat our toes!

When we go back to the boat Mike let us jump off it into the English Channel. YES, we have officially swum in the English Channel! We then had the most amazing fish and chips followed by a chilled out evening watching the football. We lost!
