All week we're catching up on the progress of the Sail Training Ship Lord Nelson which has reached the half-way point of her maiden voyage around the world.
She's taken part in an international fleet review in Sydney and is now competing in a tall ship's race across the Tasman Sea to Auckland in New Zealand.
To begin with the winds were kind and the sailing was smooth. Then the weather changed, putting a strain on the ship and her crew.
Richard Jones was aboard.
