Current situation at 1800: At sea off King Cheese Island. Wind Easterly at 15 knots. Temp 19 C.
Overnight we had some good sailing and the Youth Crew did some sail setting and furling and climbed aloft again. The fish feeding is continuing but thankfully, after a smooth departure, most people are acclimatised to the motion of the ship. We've had a wobbly ride on a sloppy sea caused by two swell patterns meeting so I'm not surprised at the seasickness. Tomorrow morning we reach King Island and we will all go on a tour of the islands main attractions - cheese, cows and celp (kelp). Everyone is going well and are starting to get into the swing of things. Friday will be a good break and the chance to regain those land legs.

Youth Crew entry by Erin Stockdale, 17 yrs old and from Geelong. ��� Since we made our way onto the ship it has been a fun but treacherous journey. We have learnt many things but most of all I have learnt how to throw up and I was the privileged first to throw up on the first night. Apart from only just making it up to the top of the mast on the first night I did make it and now I feel proud that I did make it but I'm not going back up. It has been a fun journey so far and I hope that I will stop throwing up some day soon so I can appreciate the trip more. I will see you at Geelong on 26th and hopefully I will not be throwing up. Cya - Erin Stockdale.

Stay tuned
