WHAT A WILD EXPERIENCE. THROUGH RAIN AND SUNSHINE WE BATLLED ON TO SET SAILS AND RUN THE SHIP. COMMAND DAY DEFINATELY LEFT US ALL WITH MEMORIES TO LAUGH ABOUT. EVERYONE HAS GROWN IN THEIR OWN WAY OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS. THE CONFIDENCE AND LEADERSHIP SKILLS WILL DEFINATELY MAKE A BIG INFLUENCE OVER THE COMING WEEKS, MONTHS AND YEARS. GOOD LUCK TO ALL. AND CONGRATULATIONS ON A FANTASTIC VOYAGE.

NICOLE, MELBOURNE.
THIS HAS HAD TO BE ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING, MEMORABLE AND AMAZING EXPREIENCE THAT ANYONE COULD EVER WISH FOR. FROM OUR FIRST DAY THERE HAS BEEN THRILLS, SPILLS AND LOADS OF MEMORIES THAT ALL 24 YOUTH CREW WILL CHERISH FOREVER. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR JUST BEING YOURSELVES, THE FANTASTIC PEOPLE THAT YOU ALL ARE, AND IF YOU HAVE THE CHANCE, APPLY, YOU AND YOU TO WILL HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE.
