Hello shipmates
G'day shipmates, the Circumnavigation is not yet complete but the ship has returned to Sydney for seven weeks to conduct some maintenance before continuing with two more Voyages before Christmas.
Voyage 16/01 is complete and we've had a blast. Thanks to all the Youth Crew and Staffies who made this trip from Melbourne such a success.
On a glorious spring day that only Sydney can offer, we left our berth and arrived at Garden Island.
Command Day was a success. Well done, YOUTH CREW. After plenty of frustrations and the wind God not playing the game, the YC gave us a tremendous display of teamwork to overcome their problems.
Last night we made ground north past Bega and Ulladulla against a strong wind.
Today's CO's log is by acting Captain Woody, yes I have had the honour and privilege of taking care of the ship and her crew for the day.
Last night the wind tapered off and left us motor-sailing toward Eden.
Today was great! The sun shone and with a following breeze we ran east under full sail for most of the day.
