Oriole sails the Scottish Islands
Posted in : Oriole
Oriole’s latest crew arrived at lunch today allowing us to get stuck straight into briefings after an arrival feed. Welcome and Domestics, cups of tea then deck, winches, safety gear, foul weather gear – (why do we need that, it’s scotland!) and finally our mob training alongside. Our new crew are already ready to set sail! A successful afternoon was rewarded with a wee trip ashore to explore stornoway and get some last minute gifts while the mate tackled some last minute maintenance and the skipper held the fort in the galley. A peaceful dinner onboard complete with cake for our quiet birthday boy David. We now look forward to settling down into our warm and comfy bunks for a good rest before the real sail training starts tomorrow!
