Inside Boathouse No 4 at Portsmouth Historical Naval dockyards, you can see the restoration of boats, give yourself a lift while discovering how block and tackle works, spin yourself some rope and climb the rigging in a mock up of a small sailing ship.
We watched a father and son climb up the rigging and walk along the mast to ring the ship’s bell, all safely on dry land.
Receiving instructions, before the climb.
Climbing the rigging, a high-five from dad, and a walk along the mast to ring the bell before being lowered to the ground. Well done, dudes.
