Motor Sailing, Tasman Sea, passage to Eden, NSW
Well it has been an exciting and interesting 24 hours. Late last
night, one of the Youth Crew spotted a Tanker out at sea - our
first sign of human life in 5 days. We are still on passage to
Australia with only 140 nautical miles to Eden. We intend to make
it to Montague Island late tomorrow morning where at 1300 the
Youth Crew will take control of the ship for 24 hours and sail us
into Eden. In preparation for Command Day, our elections were
held this afternoon. Adam was elected CO, Bryce elected as XO and
Simon and Alex will be our Navigators. Looking after the three
watches will be Bree, Dale and myself as Watch Leaders, and cooking
up a storm in the galley will be Breeah, Alice, Abbey and Jess as our
Chefs. We are all having the time of our lives but are looking
forward to seeing land again.
