Sunday saw a beautiful boat set sail with children from Revive Portland on board, the boat was the 62ft Morning Star of Revelation which has a Ferro-Cement hull and timber spars rigged as a Gaff Ketch. On board there are 14 people;
- 9 Children from Revive Portland project
- 2 Leaders with the children
- 2 part time volunteer crew
- 1 skipper – Colin.
Colin first sailed on the Morning Star when he was 15 back in 1982, a year after she was launched, and he fell in love with her. He sailed on her many times after thatas a watch leader and finally now as Skipper having gained all the necessary tickets during his time in the Navy.
After Sunday’s departure their first intended destination was Lulworth Cove followed by a weeks sailing heading towards the Chanel Islands.
