Bex Readies for Sea

Tall Ships 2017 Blog – No. 1

Hey I’m Bex, an Explorer Scout from St. Helens District in Merseyside. In about 2 days, I’ll be setting off on a Tall Ship Voyage on board the Stavros S Niarchos. This will be my first time sailing on a ship and I’m super excited. However, I’m also nervous about how quickly I’ll pick up the terminology and how well I will do, but I guess I’ll hopefully improve as the voyage goes on. Right now, I’m getting the final bits and pieces together to take with me. I feel as if I’m developing a cold, so hopefully that will go by Sunday and won’t inhibit the fun that I will have aboard the ship. I can’t thank the Deep Sea Scouts enough for this amazing opportunity: I am ready to push myself to my limits, develop my skills in teamwork and see what I can achieve.
