As a thank you for volunteering and helping out during the Tall ship event in Famouth myself and the other volunteers had a 3hour sail on the Mercedis, as a thank you present.
The inauguration of sailing ship Mercedes was in May 2005 and she is one
of the youngest ships in the international fleet of tall ships. Mercedes has an mpressive rigging with 900 m² total sail area and it was a grand pleasure to sail with her. I ignored my fear for heights and climbed up the high into the mast. Pretty cool experience!
