The first voyage of 2002 is underway. Our keen Youth Crew (YC) joined early today, eager to set sail on Young Endeavour. A large crowd of friends and family farewelled them on their journey to Devonport, Tasmania.The YC have dined, toured and are about to climb. It should be a good view from up there (if they look). Then they will split into their respective Red, White and Blue watches and go for some more climbing and knot tying to prepare them when we actually go to sea tomorrow and head south to Tassie. It will be a big night for them.My team for Voyage 01/02 is: Paul – XO, Aaron – Nav, Damo – swimmer/job seeker, Eddie – White Watch Leader, Sal (last voyage) – Red WL, Dutchy (new guy, new bosun) – Blue WL, Karen – Cheffo, Barry – Engineer. Check out the Captains Voice Log. I’ll update it every couple of days – you may hear someone you know.Stay tunedAndrew Davis

Thank you Tarvi, Kaeden and Matt for your narrative of today's events. Intentions are to remain at anchor in Hunters Bay, just off HMAS Penguin, home of the RAN Diving School, a place close to my heart, having spent many a day there under training as a young Officer! The plan is to weigh anchor and proceed to HMAS Waterhen, in Waverton, to pick up our Community Day Sailors from the Windgap Foundation and take them for a sail around the harbour for 3 hours. The Youth Crew will help us host our visitors and give them an experience of Young Endeavour. We will drop them back to Waverton and then proceed to anchor in the harbour where we will have a good view of the Bridge and the Opera House for the Youth Crew's last night onboard. Until tomorrow. Yours Aye, Captain Mike
