Ahoy Ye Lubbers,

What a great 24 hours we have had - after an awesome Command Day and an anchorage with SPIRIT of NZ we had the Command Day debreif and saw the video \Around Cape Horn\" in which we saw how they did it on square rig ships a century ago.

This morning we had morning brief and happy hour before a big lunch. We then went ashore at Captain Cook's monument and then set off over the Queen Charlotte Track to cover the 15km to Endeavour Inlet. During the walk we also undertook Marcello's \"Values Journey\", which is an exercise in defining your personal values stance. The strenuous journey completed after about four hours at Furneaux Lodge in Endeavour Inlet.

Tonight we are having a BBQ ashore at the inlet before some free time ashore enjoying the Lodge facilities. Tomorrow morning we will be heading off for a day of sailing in the sounds followed by an overnight anchorage at Waikawa Bay.

Until tomorrow, me hearties,

Yours Aye


Chris Galloway
Commander, RAN
Commanding Officer"
