FABULOUS SAILING UNDER ALL SQUARES ON A BROAD REACH. ALL WATCHES UNDERTAKING MANY MORE OF THE WATCH DUTIES FOR EXAMPLE: TRICKS ON THE HELM, ROUNDS, SETTING, FURLING AND TRIMMING SAILS, CLIMBING ALOFT AND KEEPING LOOKOUT DUTIES. THOSE FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE SHIP'S MOTION HAVE NOW IMPROVED AND FEELING 100 PERCENT BETTER. ALL WELL IN THE GALLEY AS APPETITES HAVE NOW RETURNED. YOUTH CREW HAVE SETTLED WELL INTO SHIP BOARD LIFE.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

HELEN, SYDNEY. BEEN UP THE MAST TO THE END OF THE YARDS IN THE DARK WHILST UNDER SAIL - SCARY BUT FUN TO DO. SEEN LOTS OF THE CREW IN PERIOD COSTUME...

CHANTEL, SYDNEY. FINDING THE TRIP EXTREEMLY REWARDING, TOUGH,
CHALLENGING, AND ENJOYABLE. LOOKING FORWARD TO TACKELING THE BASS STRAIGHT.

MATT, MELBOURNE. EVERYBODY HAS BEEN SEASICK FOR THE PAST 3 DAYS BUT WE ARE OVER IT NOW THE FOOD IS BETTER THAN AT HOME WITH A LARGE SELECTION IT HAS BEEN LOTS OF FUN AND HAS BEEN A HUGE ADVENTURE.

HEATHER, TASNABIA. HAD THE 4AM TO 8AM WATCH, I WAS LOOK OUT. I SAW A LIGHT THAT LOOKED LIKE A STAR, THEN IT LOOKED LIKE A SHIP, THEN IT BECAME THE MOON. IT ROSE UP AND THE SLIVER GOT BIGGER AND WAS ALMOST AN ECLIPSE. STARS FROM THE SEA ARE THE BEST. I'M NOT SEASICK ANYMORE.
