Silas Sailing On Ted Ashby





As I was sailing on the Ted Ashby I could feel the wind lashing through my hair, then icy wind started biting my face. When it was time to pull the main sail, I struggled as I heaved on the halliard as hard as I could. On the sides of Ted Ashby, waves were lapping and making strange sounds. As we headed towards the harbour it was time to hoist the sails so we could sail to the harbour bridge.

  1. Silas, what a great descriptive piece of writing. I remember going on the Ted Ashby when I was working at Kelston Deaf School. We talked a lot about finding our sea legs, getting used to being on the water. I like all the nautical words you ahve used.
