Bob Footer’s nautical lockdown quiz

By Tall Ships - July 1st, 2020 | Posted in News No comments

Whilst sitting at home dreaming of getting back afloat, why not turn your mind to this nautical quiz? This has proved popular & engaging over the years with different themes.

Here’s how it works:

Each clue shows the first letters of a well-known title, first line, saying or quotation. The subject is all things NAUTICAL & TO DO WITH THE SEA & BOATS and within the following 50 clues, the underlined/emboldened letter refers to the word which is to do with the sea beginning with that letter (i.e. sea, ship, boat, water, tide, sailor, deck, etc.) e.g. The O & the P C W T S, I A B P-G B = The owl and the pussy cat went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat

Tall ships are the UK’s oldest and largest sail training charity, but becoming a sailor is not the only outcome. They are a youth development charity that helps young people 12-25 redefine their horizons through adventure learning at sea.

The quiz is provided free to download but any donations are very welcome.

Answers will be published on the same website on the 1st July 2020

Enjoy and stay safe until we can get wet again!
