    Mini sailors stormed the new play ship at the National Museum of the Royal Navy as soon as it was launched on Friday 2 August 2019.

    Rope ladders were scaled, swings flown high, carousels whizzed round and pirates escaped down slides as the ship set sail for foreign shores. 

    Toddlers loved their very own mini sailing ship complete with slides and ladders of their own.  The low-level, inclusive carousel which accommodates wheelchairs was also a big hit.

    Emily Wallace (5) from Billingham said: “I liked the big yellow slide because we went very very fast!”.
