At Anchor, Waikawa Bay, Near Picton N.Z.

Hello All,We have just enjoyed another awesome day in the beautifiul Marlborough Sounds. This morning we had the usual routines of morning brief, and happy hour, followed by a communication exercise designed to help people understand barriers to communication in large organisations. After that we went ashore again at Furneaux Lodge for a games day organised by our supers, Jarrod and Matt. Staff won the session (as usual), and we all returned onboard to another of Sammi’s awesome lunches.During the afternoon we weighed anchor and set all sails, and departed Endeavour Inlet for Waikawa Bay, where we anchored at 4.00. Everyone was straight into the water for a swim, followed by a BBQ dinner.Tonight we will have the opportunity to go ashore and enjoy the bright lights of Waikawa and Picton.Tomorrow we plan to visit the NZ Outward Bound School at Anakiwa, before we head out to cross Cook Strait to Wellington.Until tomorrow, shipmates,Yours Aye,ChrisChris GallowayCommander, RANCommanding Officer
