Day Two

Yesterday we set off to Campbelltown from Liverpool. Our nightshifts were dark and cold. We worked 4 hours on and 4 hours off for 24 hours. For most of us it was our first time on a boat so it was a scary experience but we got used to it. We cooked tea and started working again. The sea was calm but the boat rocked about from side to side all night. When we arrived at campbelltown in Scotland we all went to sleep for 6 hours and woke up to the sun in campbelltown.
