Morgenster Sailing Training Ship

Twenty apprentices and trainees joined the sail training ship Morgenster at Greenwich Pier and took part in a variety of activities including going aloft, venturing out on the bowsprit and setting sails. After sailing through Tower Bridge we moored on Tower Pier where representatives from the PLA, MCA, LRS as well as many Thames operators came to see the training demonstrations. It is hoped that the number apprentices sailing on board can increase in the coming years.

We must say a big thank you to the Lighterage Committee, PLA, the pilot team, James Gilbert and Matthew Spanswick without whom the day would not have been possible
