YOUNG ENDEAVOUR MADE SAIL AND SET ALL FORE AND AFT SAILS INCLUDING THE FISHERMAN AND MAIN GAFF TOPSAIL TO CAPTURE THE PREVAILING
CONDITIONS. THE WINDS VEERED TO THE NW TO ALLOW THE TOPSAIL TO BE SET AND ALL YOUTH CREW WERE THROUGHLY IMPRESSED WITH THEIR EFFORTS. AS THE CONDITIONS VARIED ENORMOUSLY SAIL WAS ADJUSTED FREQUENTLY THROUGH THE EVENING AND IN THE EARLY HOURS WINDS INCREASED OVER 25 KNOTS REQUIRING HANDS TO EITHER CLEW UP OR FURL SAILS. THIS MORNING THE SHIP ANCHORED AT SW ROCKS, NORTHERN NSW FOR A WELL EARNED BREAK.
ALL VERY WELL.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

MORGAN, YAMBA
THIS IS THE BEST THING THAT I HAVE EVER DONE I HAVE CHALLENGED EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN ASKED OF ME. THE EXPERIENCE IS ONE OF A LIFETIME. THE PEOPLE ARE GREAT AND IM HAVING HEAPS OF FUN.

SACHA, VIC
TALK ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFE TIME. THE CHALLENGES AND THE TASKS ARE GREAT YET NOT TOO DIFFICULT. THE PEOPLE ARE FANTASTIC AND ARE REALLY EASY TO GET ALONG WITH. I GOT THIS BY CHANCE AND FEEL LIKE THE LUCKIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD.

JESSE, QLD
FELT SEASICK AT FIRST, BUT OVERCAME THIS BY CLIMBING THE 30 METRE-HIGH MAST, ROCKING IN THE WIND AT 3AM.

JAMES, TASSIE
GREAT VOYAGE, GREAT WEATHER, LAPPING UP THE SUNSHINE AFTER A ROUGH RIDE UP THE MAST LAST NIGHT, CANT THINK OF ANYTHING BETTER TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW

YOURS AYE
