I will never be a sailor though. It was good fun spending time at sea where I got a completely different relationship with the wind which is usually the challenge as a and as an ordinary seaman the wind was suddenly a helping hand.

The activities were only on the rim of my comfort zone so it was some good challenges for me as I have never tried either scuba diving or rappelling before. The entire session here provides us with a common experience that we talk about throughout the year so on the internal social sphere it has been a great success for us all, “said Tim Duggan.
