The Sail and Life Training Society is a veteran of four previous deep sea adventures. This will be the first visit of the Pacific Grace to many of the countries, ports and remote communities which are familiar to the Graceīs sister training ship, the Pacific Swift. The voyage will be comprised of four distinct legs.Trainees may apply for one or more legs with no restriction as to numbers of legs except for availability at the time of application. Each leg will consist of several intermediate stops between ports of arrival or departure; however, these stops are subject to prevailing weather and the political situation and may be increased or eliminated at the discretion of the shipīs master.

Ship's Log:
Well here we are again at the end of a leg. It seems as though we were just here. This leg has gone by faster than any I can remember. We have spent the last couple of days together preparing the boat for leg three. At one point, Tuesday afternoon there were people loading groceries, stowing groceries, setting up the rigging, painting the hull, painting ironwork, taking on fuel, taking on water you name it and it was going on. Two days of work and the Grace is all ship shape and ready for another leg.

Today was our last full day together and we have just finished our now traditional leg end dinner. Everyone was dressed in thier best and again the cooks produced an amazing meal for us all. Tonights menu began with salad and then appis. of jumbo prawns cooked in garlic butter followed by a very tasty main course of chicken breast and rice. Oh yes and banana splits to finish. During desert John A once again kept us in stiches with his fine awards presentation. All now are hanging out together on deck remembering different parts of this last leg. This has been a very memorable leg for us all. We will miss everyone dearly as many strong friendships have developed over the last couple of months. It is always a bitter sweet moment, not willing to let go of the past but at the same time looking ahead with excitment.

God Bless all of you who are leaving us.
