FRESH SE BREEZE FANTASTIC SAILING CONDITIONS
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS PAST 24 HOURS. THE SHIP CAME TO ANCHOR AT MIDDLE PERCY ISLAND -A MAGNIFICENT HAVEN IN THE CUMBERLAND GROUP. ON ARRIVAL ALL YOUTH CREW WERE TRANSFERED ASHORE IN THE RHIB FOR BEACH
SPORTS AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE THIS ISLAND. AS AN EXTRA TREAT THE ISLAND'S CARETAKERS GAVE PERMISSION FOR YOUNG ENDEAVOUR TO ENJOY THEIR BBQ AND A FRAME HUT FACILITIES FOR THE EVENING'S BBQ AND THREE-WAY TALKS. THIS PROVIDED A VERY FITTING ENVIRONMENT AROUND A CAMP
FIRE TO TALK ON BEHALF OF A FELLOW YOUTH CREW TO DEVELOP PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS AND GET TO KNOW FELLOW CREW MEMBERS. AN EVENING
BOAT TRANSFER COMPLETED A WONDERFUL DAY ASHORE. OVERNIGHT ALL YOUTH CREW MAINTAINED HOURLY ANCHOR WATCH TRICKS IN GROUPS OF THREE TO ALLOW AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A GRAND NIGHT'S REST. DURING THE MORNING THE
SHIP DEPARTED THE ANCHORAGE AND SET ALL FORE AND AFT SAILS NOW BOUND FOR GREAT KEPPEL ISLAND. THOSE WHO WERE SEA SICK ARE FEELING VERY MUCH BETTER.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

CALEB, MACKAY. I LIKE THE WAY THAT THERE IS A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS. ALSO THE WAY THAT THE SHIP IS RUN FROM NORMAL CONVENTIONAL WAYS.

RYAN, MELBOURNE. TODAY SO FAR HAS BEEN GREAT. THE YOUTH CREW SPEW-O-METRE HAS REMAINED AT ZERO SINCE WE ANCHORED YESTERDAY, THANKS PARTICULARLY TO A DAY ON THE BEACH AND A GOOD (LESS TURBULENT) SLEEP.
THIS MEANS EVERYONE FROM ALL THE WATCHES HAS BEEN ABLE TO TEAM TOGETHER AND GET FULLY INVOLVED.

TARA, QUEANBEYAN. I'M SLOWLY GETTING OVER SOME OF MY FEARS. FIRST DAY WE GOT RIGHT INTO THINGS, WE CLIMBED ALOFT TWICE, THE SECOND DAY MOST OF THE YOUTH CREW WERE SICK, AND THE SAME FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE
THIRD DAY, TILL WE ANCHORED AND SPENT THE REST OF THE DAY AT THE BEACH, THAT WAS AWESOME. TODAY HAS BEEN PRETTY GOOD SO FAR, WITH EVERYONE FEELING WELL. TILL NEXT TIME.

YOURS AYE,

BRENTON WITT
