Photos from the Quilombo trip

Mike West, one of our guest instructors, recently helped to take Quilombo, a 50 foot ketch, parr of the way from Aegina to Devon.

Their journey took them through the Corinth Canal and across the Ionian.

They then made their way via Sicily, Ibiza, and the south coast of Spain, arriving in Almeria on 24 June.

On the journey Mike completed Day Skipper instrcution for the owner, Peter Cairns, and Competent Crew courses for various other members of crew, including Ollie Wakefield (14) and Jake Henson (13).

Here are some of the pictures from the trip. You can see that the boys earned their Competent Crew certificates.

Don’t worry about the sextant – that is not part of either the Comp Crew or Day Skipper syllabus, and climbing the mast is also optional!
