Sailing on the HMS Pickle

9th June 2017

During half term one of our Year 9 student, Mason Wild, sailed on the HMS Pickle, a recreation of Lord Nelson’s famous messenger ship. 

Among the crew is 14-year-old Mason Wild, from Hull, who has been given time off from his school to sail on Pickle as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Mason said: “It’s brilliant. It is a chance you won’t get anywhere else.

“I’m learning sailing, navigation, cooking and life skills.”
