Winds remained light with grey skies most of yesterday which can only be described as dull. Our planned tacking drills were put on hold.
Very light winds for most of the day meant that we had to keep the engines running which is always frustrating.
Yesterday was a busy day. As the ship departed Corio Bay, the port of Geelong, the youth crew commenced their instruction in how to sail a tall ship.
Not everyday is a great day in Young Endeavour and yesterday was one of them. Youth Crew 06/00 joined the ship in the afternoon and following crew introductions we prepared to get underway.
On completion of the half day sail we went to anchor in Geelong Inner Harbour.
A very busy day so I am late logging on again. Yesterday we left our intrepid Youth Crew having succesfully completed their rescue mission and on their way for their next mission.

There never seems to be a dull moment on a tall ship.

Yesterday afternoon was spent largely under motor in light winds but the time was put to good use with a communications game, again in preparation for the culminating event of Command Day.
After completing demonstration tacks yesterday afternoon we sailed back to anchor in Refuge Cove.
Noon Saturday
