At Anchor, Port Sorell, NE Tasmania

Ahoy Shipmates,What an exciting Command Day we have had – we had excellent wind throughout, the sea were relatively calm, and the team had a fantastic and challenging time. Everyone is really weary now, after a busy 24 hours. We had to tack twice during the night – on one occasion things got a bit confused and we ended uo driving the shio backwards at 4knots – no probelm really, the YC Command Team unravelled it all and got us on our way again!Staffies took over again soon after 1300 today, and we are now at anchor in the shadow of the Asbestos Mountains – anothir picturesque part of Tasmania.Tonight we will have the Command Day Debrief, follwed by a good night’s slepp. Tomorrow will be another fun day – we are conducting a half-day sail out of Devonport with a group of disabled people, who because of their particular circumstance in life are unable to enjoy the full YOUNG ENDEAVOUR experience. I’m looking forward to it, and the weather looks good for it as well.Until tomorrow, shipmates,Yours Aye,ChrisChris GallowayCommander, RANCommanding Officer
