A wee bit of a rest
Ahoy there,Welcome to day 11 of our voyage. This morning the crew awoke to cold and partly-overcast day. Sail Master Guv got us all on deck for a quick game to get the blood flowing and mind awake after a restful night at anchor in Sandy Bay.At 0945 we weighed anchor and transited the short distance around to the Princes Wharf, berthing there at 1000, where we were welcomed by a number of family, friends and local well wishers.Once alongside family and friends were invited onboard for a tour of the ship and to witness my final address and the presentation of Certificates of Achievement to all of the Youth Crew. Following this presentation we said our final emotional farewell to the Youth Crew of Voyage 05/18 as they departed the Ship.On a personal note, I would like to thank all of the Youth Crew of Voyage 05/18 for the effort that you have put in throughout this voyage, you are a wonderful group of young Australians and all of the Staff Crew of Young Endeavour have thoroughly enjoyed sailing with you.Young Endeavour will remain alongside in Hobart until Fri 09 Mar 18 when we will embark our Youth Crew for V06/18 and sail for Melbourne, Victoria.Bye for now,Â Yours AyeCaptain Mike

STS Young Endeavour is, by the definition and origin of her name, about Aussie youths trying hard to achieve something difficult. This voyage certainly provided that... and then some. A challenging experience from all angles and areas. Yet the Youth Crew prevailed and found success. They should therefore be justifiably proud of themselves for persevering, seeing the silver lining and never wavering in their mission to have a great adventure. I am very proud of all of them and I'm sure you are too!
9 Days ago 23 Youth Crew from all over Australia, came together to sail this vessel, have fun and challenge themselves. They have not only done that, but have faced and overcome fears, and learnt a lot about themselves and each other.
They leave with new skills, improved persistence, resilience and adaptability, as well as generally knowing they are more capable than what they probably thought. And of course, having made great new friends - most probably, friends for life. It never gets old for us staff members, as we truly love our work.
Fair winds and following seas.
