The first day we sailed out of port I was steering the boat - this is called taking the barr. There is compass that helps to navigate the direction you want to go and this is called the Cap.
On the boat with me there was a French boy called Thomas, and he was 12; and James from year 3 at IST. The skipper was called François, and James' dad was called John and the only woman on the boat was called Elisabeth, she was Thomas's Mum. My dad was there too. So altogether there were 7 on board 'Biclou' - that was the name of the boat.
We sailed around Fort Boyard and we discovered just how people now arrive and leave the fort.
