Everybody got to the topgallant yard last night, which was a great effort for day 1. At 0800 we had our flag raising ceremony followed by morning brief.
Another 24 eager youth crew joined the ship this afternoon for the voyage from Brisbane to Gladstone. At 1530, I formally welcomed them onboard and introduced the staff crew.
With our special guests embarked we sailed at 1000 and enjoyed a lively sail in Moreton Bay. Our newest crewmembers had a ball and got involved in all aspects of sailing the ship.
