Ward is a popular Old English origin and Old Gaelic origin surname dating to before the Norman conquest of 1066 and Ireland, common in English-speaking countries.The Old English name derives from an occupational surname for a civil guard/keeper of the watch, or alternately as a topographical surname from the word werd ("marsh").The Brit, who was originally cast as Daenerys Targaryen in the hit series before leaving a year later, was seen in traditional period clothing as she got into character.The eight-episode series, directed by Paul Mc Guigan, is believed to be set in a neo-Victorian city where mythical creatures have gathered.But Nick still had to face five metre-high waves while the huge vessel attempted to manoeuvre close to him so he could clamber aboard.
The 49-year-old had sunk 'every penny he had' into the global trip on his ship called Talent.But every day is a new day.'I was unlucky really - luck is always a big factor.'When I get home, my plan is to replace the boat with a dog, stop off-shore sailing and make an effort to settle down.'I have been doing it for 20 years and it is an adventure for a while but for forever it is a tough life.'I won't be homeless for long, and if worse comes to worse I can buy a wreck and use that as my home.'It is all a bit sad but I'm uninjured and though there was a bit of hardship and struggle, I've had a great time and a real experience.'I lost the boat but I gained yet another story.'Nick, who had worked as a yacht delivery skipper taking boats across the sea for 20 years, was undertaking his 31st ocean crossing.Luckily when the strong waves violently capsized his vessel he was below board eating dinner as he said if he had been above deck he would definitely have been flung overboard.After cutting the snapped mast and poles loose from his boat, he put out a mayday distress call and was rescued by US car carrier Patriot after 15 hours.
