TALL SHIP'S CREWf Are you planning to take part in the 2002 Cutty Sark Tall Ships race?

If so we'd love to hear from you.

This famous race sets sail in July. On board Tall Ships from all over the world will be crews of young people between the ages of 16 to 25. The event starts in Alicante in Spain with a

cruise, then the real racing begins from Malaga to La Coruna in Spain. Race 2

takes the crews from Brest in France to Santander in Spain, and then the final Race 3 is from Spain to Portsmouth in the UK.

We want to follow the race every wave of the way so if you're going to be part of a crew on board one of the awesome ships let us know as quickly as possible. Write to:


Well, it is paradise if you love boats! In September a very special museum will be opening in the west - it's the National Maritime Museum, Cornwall.

The museum was due to open this month but, as you can see from the blueprints, the building is so amazing it's taking a little time to finish. The official opening is now in the autumn.

So, what's so special about the museum? Well, first it's in Falmouth and the town not only has a long maritime history it's also the third largest natural deep-water harbour in the world.

Then we're told the museum is not just another place for adults to learn dry facts. This museum is aimed at all the family and promises

National Maritime Museum, Cornwall THE FACTS: The museum will cost 22 million pounds to build and fit out The incredible building sits on nearly 400 reinforced concrete pilings that took over a year to put into the sea bed. There are 52251 slates on the roof 4000 tonnes of concrete and 250 tonnes of steel went into the building. Over 16.6 kilometres of green oak planking covers the building - enough to make a walkway up to Mount Everest and back! The new sea wall will withstand 100 years of salt water corrosion and even the possible effects of global warming. Trays of water on the roof will reflect the sunlight to create a ripple effect across the ceiling of the building.

to have loads of hands- on activities to find out more about boats and how they work.

There'll even be the chance to sail a boat. Visitors can steer 39cm long model boats in a specially designed Waterfront gallery pool. If you want to learn more about the weather, about navigation and about the tides then there'll be masses of info for you at the museum. You'll even be able to watch the tides ebb and flow from the building.

And, of course, there'll be plenty of boats, from the oldest - a dugout canoe dating from 1850's - to the longest, a 20 metre Eton 10 rowing boat.

The crew at Young Reader's will definitely be heading west in September to see the Museum - hope to see you there!
