Well, ladies and gents, boys and girls,
I’m writing the penultimate log of this fantastic voyage with a little moisture in my eyes, dear readers… probably just dust.
Ahoy there, shipmates… Command day has endeth and the worn out Youth Crew did needeth some chill time to wind down after a hectic, but successful, 24 hours(eth?).
So, having remained at anchor overnight, we awoke to a smashing day in the lee of Great Keppel Island. The SSE wind had picked up overnight, but we were nice and snug, dear readers.
Well, dear reader, it was watches at sea overnight - with some sail handling and climbing taking place - whilst motor-sailing towards Great Keppel Island, as we were head to wind most of the night.
Dear readers, I hope this dispatch finds you well. I really do hate to rub it in, but we have just had another amazing day! I can't help it, ladies and gentlemen, I’m just telling it how it is.
Perhaps cliché, but I never tire of a sunset at sea. Tonight’s was definitely no slouch! A gorgeous sky over the Cumberland Island group, with Mackay in the background.
Some wise person once said, “Attitude is the difference between an adventure and an ordeal”… Our Youthies, ladies and gents, are fully conversant with this maxim.
Ahoy there, dear readers. We now find ourselves at the end of another smashing day, sailing amongst the magical, Whitsunday archipelago.
