Kia Ora Whanau. Greetings from the R Tucker Thompson as our first day at sea nears an end. It has been a great sunny beginning to our trainees first experiences of their Tall Ship adventure. After the introductions were over and all safety drills had been performed we anchored at Moturua Island and devoured a hearty lunch of soup and scones.

We then explored the rig and played some team building games involving blindfolds. We left Moturua and our trainees had their first hands on experience of sailing a Tall Ship to Paradise Bay, Urupukapuka Island. We are anchored here for the night and are looking forward to another marvellous day tomorrow. Goodnight!
