Tall Ships Races Sunderland 2018

"Hi my name is Chris Dow, my youth workers at Pennywell Youth Project  asked me if I was intrested in taking part in Regatta Tall Ship races 2018. I took some infomation home that they provided me with to show my  parents, speaking with them and my youth workers gave me the motivation to want to take part in such a life changing event. Once I had been told that the  youth workers put me forward I was excited, but nervous. When I was accepted itade me realise how much of a big deal this could actually be and the fact that I had been nominated to take part in such an amazing experience made me so happy. The experience changed my life completely as I know how lucky I am to be able to represent my city in such a great activity. I gained great experience and met new friends whilst learning new skills that will benefit my future"
