Captain's Log
6 July 2010


Hi Everyone,We finally entered Trial Bay and came safely to anchor at 2345 last night. Following a more stable night’s sleep at anchor a refreshed Youth Crew awoke to a fine but cool morning. On completion of the normal morning domestic duties the Youth Crew were ferried ashore were they were given the opportunity to tour the historic Trial Bay Prison, play some sport, enjoy a good leg stretch or just laze on the beach.By 1500 everyone was back onboard and following one of ‘Kenny’ the Boats Officers informative and interactive Rule of the Road Presentation the entire Youth Crew proceeded aloft to witness a spectacular sunset from the foremast yards. This at evening we enjoyed the first teak deck BBQ of the voyage followed by an extremely entertaining round of three way talks, which is a communication and public speaking exercise.Our Plan at the moment is to remain at anchor tonight then get underway again early tomorrow morning and continue our passage north. At present the weather forecast is for moderate S-SW winds which should continue to provide us with some good sailing conditions.Until tomorrow, take care.Yours AyeCaptain Gav
