PAST 24 HOURS

THE PREVAILING BREEZE EASED WHICH ALLOWED ALL WATCHES TO FOCUS ON SAIL THEORY IN AN ATTEMPT SET THE APPROPRIATE SAIL SUIT TO IMPROVE HEADWAY. DURING THE FIRST DOG WATCH HANDS CLOSED UP TO STATIONS AND CONDUCTED FOUR LIGHT AIR, WEAR SHIP MANOUVRES. A TIMELY EVENT THOUGH IT BROUGHT HOME THE EFFECTIVENESS OF GOOD CALLS AND CORRECT PROCEDURES ON DECK.

OVERNIGHT ALL WATCHES FOCUSED ON NAVIGATION AND SAIL HANDLING. LANDFALL WAS MADE EARLY THIS MORNING AS THE WATCHES WERE ALOFT ON THE TOPGALLANT YARD. THE FINAL EVOLUTION TODAY WAS SAIL SETTING DRILLS WHERE ALL WATCHES WERE GIVEN TWO SAILS TO SET AND
FURL WHILST BEING ASSESSED BY STAFF. TO EVERYONES CREDIT THE DRILLS WERE UNDERTAKEN SAFELY, WELL DONE TO ALL INVOLVED.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

SAM, BRISBANE
THE YOUNG ENDEAVOUR FOR ME HAS BEEN AN EXHILERATING EXPERIENCE FOR ME. THE VOYAGE HAS BROUGHT A SENSE OF HAPPINESS TO EVERYONE NOT JUST MYSELF. IT HAS MADE US DISCOVER WHAT REALLY LIES UNDERNEATH US. APART FROM THAT THE CLIMBING ALOFT HAS BEEN THE MOST CHALLENGING PART FOR ME. ANYWAY I MISS YOU ALL AT HOME CHRIS, MUM, BELLA AND ASAKO, NANNA AND GRANDAD, I'LL SEE U SOON.

KEVIN,
THE YOUNG ENDERVOUR IS GO FUN. LIKE DAY ONE WE DID A LOT OF CLIMING THEN WE DID THE FIRST NIGHT EVERYONE GOT SEASICK. THE WATER GOT REAL BAD. WE ALL WHERE GETTING SOME SLEEP THE THE BOAT CAUGHT A WAVE AND THE WAVE SPRAYED US ON WATCH.

KIM, VICTORIA
