Sa, had a brilliant time. We crossed the Bay of Biscay in a force 9 gale, iled on the Devonia in 1966

Was part of a school trip that sailed on the Devonia late 1966, we crossed the Bay Of Biscay in a force 9 gale, poor matron was kept busy that night. Modern day schools would never allow their pupils the freedom we expreienced that holiday with our teachers
