Prior to boarding we underwent a briefing. Once reaching the ship we were split into our watches and walked on. We listened to the safety briefing of the crew, we then set up our bunks and learnt how to climb the emergency ladder to the main deck. We were showed how to properly use the amenities onboard.
We anchored just within eyesight of the shore and were taught proper rope discipline, such as how to properly lash and hitch the ropes for the sails. We were also taught how and why the back stay is moved. We learnt a few basic knots in preparation for a knot tying competition the next day. After that we continued to mingle and chat amongst ourselves until a delicious dinner was served of Bangers and Mash, next up was cheesecake for dessert.
