Following an extremely successful visit to London we departed St Katharine Docks at just after 1500 this afternoon and are now conducting our long pilotage out of the Thames.

It will have to be a short entry into the Captains Log from me tonight as we are just about to weigh anchor and complete our passage to the entry to the Thames were we will embark our Pilot at 0326 tomorrow morning.

Despite our late start yesterday we still managed to get two of the watches through their first climbs last night and ended up getting everyone to bed by 2330.

Welcome to our first Captains Log for Passage Five of World Voyage 2015. Our voyage officially commenced for our new World Voyage Crew when they joined Young Endeavour at 1730 today berthed starboard side to the Empress Dock, Southampton.
