Everybody thoroughly enjoyed silent period in glorious sunshine yesterday afternoon. Conducted
lecture on sail theory followed by a series of deck games. Bobbing for apples laced with Tobasco
caught a few off guard!
Wind has remained fresh from the south-east which has necessitated motor-sailing overnight and today. Except for drills we have been on starboard tack since setting sail in the Derwent River. Anticipate we will be walking in circles for a while when we get ashore.
Intend conducting rotational and demonstration tacks this afternoon. All youth crew have now been aloft and onto the t'gallant yard.
