Clyde Small Ships’ Race

Faramir crew member with winch rope

In June, Faramir made her way to Glasgow to participate in the Clyde Small Ships’ Race.  Three separate youth organisations sailed the passages from Hartlepool to Oban via the Caledonian canal and another three groups sailed back with a seventh, Mathew Moss School participating in event itself. 

Their week’s voyage included activities laid on by ASTO to celebrate the Commonwealth Games and of course the race itself.  Whilst the group did not manage to complete the race, they did return to school with the Bloodhound Trophy awarded by the other competitors for spirit of the race.
