Zachary’s Diary of a Tudor Sailor

Dear Diary,

Yesterday was my first day at sea. It was horrible. As soon as I got up from bed I could smell the bilge which put me straight off my appetite. After that I crept up the steps and as soon as I got to the top of the stairs the captain yelled at me, “you there, up the crow’s nest’.

Slowly I climbed the rigging and hid as the ship swayed from side to side, till the bosun yeld at me “what can you see from up there boy.” Slowly I got up and scanned the horizon. Suddenly I spotted a Spanish flag flying and yelled “Spanish flag.” Constantly shouting orders below as I hid in the crow’s nest, suddenly somebody yelled “get down from there boy, we need all the men we’ve got.”

  1. Very creative and imaginative

  2. Very discriptive. Well done Zachary. I very much enjoyed reading your diary.
    It made me really think about what it was like as a tudor sailor. Guess what, I definatly wouldn’t want to be one. Well, I kind feel sorry for the people who got whipped. Though they probably diserved to be flogged or punished.
    Anyway, very well done to you Zachary!
