Overnight we motor-sailed towards the most southern part of the Australian mainland.
The expected weather front only amounted to about 20 knots and it brought heaps of rain as we entered Bass Strait last night. Today the pace was easier after the hectic pace of yesterday.
Today went really well.
Hi everyone.
The Voyage has ended for YC 16/00. There were many sad faces and fond farewells. The YC were very harmonious and they had some memorable adventures.
We are now at anchor doing our end of voyage jobs, like furling the sails, talking about our experiences and getting ready for the concert.
This morning at 0800 I handed command of Young Endeavour to Tony Baker, from Brisbane and the youth crew of Voyage 16/00.
Overnight the ship motorsailed along the NSW southern coast passing Ulladulla, Bega and Merimbula. Command Day is only a few hours away now and the YC are vying for positions.
After a series of successful Bear Exercises overnight, the ship entered Jervis Bay after two nights at sea. The 'Pool' was opened and everyone cooled off in the beautifully clear waters.
This is our second day at sea and the YC are loving it. They are a very harmonious group, getting on really well and are sharing some great times together.
