A bit of a breathless and exited post today, my fingers rattling off the keyboard like maggots with St Vitus Dance. Please do yourselves a big favour and, even if you never ‘do’ You-Tube, go click on the link.
This is a short video film about the use the Sea Change Sailing Trust make of SB Cambria (Reminder also makes as appearance) in their work supporting Youth Training. As well as lots of nice footage of the barge itself, it includes interviews with Richard Tichener and Hilary Halajko plus some of the trainees involved in the sailing trips. There is footage of them loading the token cargo for that cement delivery they did in the Summer and even the RAF helicopter guy being winched back off the deck to his bright yellow helicopter. You also see ‘Stretch’ showing some trainees how to use charts and trainees going aloft (on the safety line), steering and hauling on ropes.
It is geared towards a new Sea Change campaign where they are trying to raise funds to buy their own sailing vessel (barge?) which they can configure permanently for their own purposes.
Nice one Sea Change and the Team there. Good luck with the campaign.
