Hi Peter
Thanks so much for showing us this.
Great Sea - and, is it a Clipper?
Any chance of a 'Debauchery Report'? (haha!)
eg Whereabouts did you head for...and how long did you get before having to be back on board?
No need to answer if this is too much like Crew Country!!\
All the best

Oh Peter! The very thought of crew being off limits is good, in fact its excellent!
Given the hours worked - the squashed accommodation, the relentless drills, the constant assessments, the pain of the moaners (don't tell me QE2 didn't have her fair share!), and the smell of old feet etc etc - Can't imagine what you could have got up to as a way of R and R!!
Having worked shifts myself - night and day, and experienced similar 'types' in the way of Managers /Officers etc, it's surprising there weren't mutinies at least once a week!
(So far off topic here, think I might get banned!)
Better stop - if you are still in L'pool please send it my very, very best!

yes Rosie, I remember it like I've just come ashore on leave, smelly feet , cramped accommodation ( actually I had a nice two berth on four deck f'wd) .and those long hours ,so R&R was  awesome !
