Departed Jervis Bay and commenced the passage northwards to Broken Bay.
Sail Master Kyle woke the crew at 0630 and we came up to find a dry deck and fine weather, a pleasant change from yesterday. Kyle ran a quick game of 'Knights, Mounts and Cavaliers' before we headed off for another of Marcos' delicious breakfasts.

Morning brief was followed by the happiest time of the day, 'Happy Hour'. Watch Officer Marty gave the crew a nautical rule of the road brief which was followed by a brief from the Sail Master on setting the square sails.

At 1230 we sailed away from our anchorage, set all our square sails, the Top Gallant, the Topsail and the Course, and commenced our passage to Broken Bay. During the Afternoon and Dog Watches I gave the Youthies a sail theory brief to each watch separately.

It is intended to remain at sea overnight continuing our passage northwards.

Until tomorrow.

Yours aye, Captain Mike
