Sail the World - Day Five

Among the crew aboard the Sail Training Ship Lord Nelson on her maiden circumnavigation of the globe are soldiers injured fighting for their country.

It's a way of helping them recover and gives them a break from the stress of coping with their changed lives.

Among them on her visit to New Zealand is Kyle Baker who was at the centre of a dramatic medical emergency earlier in the ship's epic adventure.

Richard Jones has the last of his special reports from on board.
