As we left the heads of Sydney Harbour, the returnee crew were down below, making up their racks. It was a mild, drizzly January day, and the Sydney summer storms were brewing.
My first day back off the boat was the most strangest day in my life, as I exited the boat I felt like I was leaving my newly made family behind.
I can confidently say that my adventure on board the Young Endeavour has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life and will be an 11 days that I will cherish forever.
It was 2am on Day 9 (Command Day). We had just anchored in Scawfell Island and I was woken up to go on watch duty.
I was lucky enough to go aboard and sail on the amazing Young Endeavour Tall Ship.
I had heard copious amounts of good things about the Scheme from multiple sources, so this is what motivated me to attend.
We sailed from Port Adelaide to Hobart, it was the best experience of my life and I would highly recommend it for anyone to get in and give it a go.
I can guarantee you; you are going to fall in love... whether it be life at sea, the ship or you develop 'sea-goggles' over your time on board.
Its a Friday night in cold Bendigo where whilst cleaning up I found my letter from myself to myself completed in the last days aboard the Young Endevour.
I recently undertook the Sydney to Sydney voyage of 09/18 aboard STS Young Endeavour, and what a voyage it turned out to be!
