Sea Base: Atop the Mast
Home Log of Events Gallery Related Info Eagle's Nest

 

As soon as we set sail on the first day (within minutes, actually) Captain Jenny started putting people into the harness and letting them climb to the top of the front mast.  Pretty much everybody on board gave it a try.

We had people riding there during full sail, as well as during quiet times to watch the sun sets (see below).

Getting down was often trickier than getting up, but Captain Rhon was more than happy to scamper to the top to help talk people through the steps (and he'd do it without a harness an would sometimes even slide down one of the guide wires with just his gloved hands).

(Webmaster's note: my son Matt Ivory (Morogami.com) created the above image by stitching together two separate photos I took from the top of the mast.  It's a pretty good job, but even he admits there are a couple of mistakes.  Can you find them?)
