ALL YOUTH CREW PROGRESSING EXTREMELY WELL IN LINE HANDLING AND SAIL
SETTING DRILLS. BY LATE AFTERNOON THE SHIP CLOSED UP AT TACKING
STATIONS AND COMPLETED A SUCCESSFUL TACK. A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT
CONSIDERING THIS WAS UNDERTAKEN WITHIN THE FIRST 24 HOURS OF THE
VOYAGE. EVERYONE KEEP AN OVERNIGHT WATCH REFINING ON THE SKILLS
PPREVIOUSLY ACQUIORED AS WELL AS CONDUCTING ROUNDS, HELMSMAN TRICKS
ON THE WHEEL AND SOME EVEN WENT ALOFT. A BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE WAS
ENJOYED BY WHITE WATCH BEFORE WASHING DOWN THE FORE DECK BEFORE
HANDING OVER TO BLUE WATCH. AFTER MORNING BRIEF IT WAS HAPPY HOUR,
MORNING TEA AND A FABULOUS SET OF ROPE RACES HOSTED BY THE SHIP'S OWN
ENGINEER. A FEW ARE STILL FEELING SEA SICK THOUGH ANCHORING TONIGHT
SHOULD PROVIDE POSITIVE RELIEF.
