Move over Francis, Drake, Horatio Nelson and Sir Arthur Phillip, there are some new
kids on the block. Even if the globe wasn't exactly circumnavigated nor new colonies established at the other side of the world, in what was a first for Horris Hill, we had some budding sailors up the rigging and down by the bilge-pumps honing their skills on a tall ship around the Solent with the Tall Ships Youth Trust. Weighing in at 493t and nearly 60m in length, the Stavros S Niarchos is quite a vessel.
The sea was calm, the weather nice and warm and a great day out was had by all.
