Max was welcomed aboard the Challenger Yacht as a Crew Member where he spent four days voyaging the seas with the Tall Ships Youth Trust.
Max is already a keen sailor and wanted to build upon his existing knowledge. Because of his previous experience, Max was trusted with some of the more challenging tasks on board in tricky and windy conditions.
The trip started at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth and sailed to a mooring near Cowes to the end of the Channel where they could put the sails up and sail from Poole Bay to Weymouth, including a trip past Old Harry's Rock and into the Solent.
Following the trip, Max has been recommended to be a Watch Leader and hopes to return next year.
A fellow Skipper commented;
[quote] Max is a pleasant young man full of enthusiasm. He was a reliable and valued member of the crew. [/quote]
