Project Rough Seas Trailer

The Project
In the summer of 2011,Pangaea TV’s Simon Hammett took to the high seas to film an innovative initiative designed to help young people cultivate life skills and build their confidence in preparation for entering the workforce. Organised jointly by Catch22 and the British Schools Exploring Society (BSES), Project Rough Seas allowed 36 young adventurers to take part in a challenging five-day trek in the Norwegian mountains followed by a two-week voyage on board a tall ship, Stavros S Niarchos. The trip finished with a spectacular sail up the River Thames and under Tower Bridge, with the young people perched high up on the rigging.
