Ahoy Me Hearties,

We have just has a great afternoon ashore on the beach at Great Keppel, and are now on our way to Middle Percy Is, where we will anchor about lunchtime tomorrw.

Today was a bust day of sail training; this morning we completed demonstration tacks, where everyone gets a chance to come to the bridge and see how it is done from there, and then we sailed to anchor at Great Keppel. Of course there was also an opportunity to get \happy hour\" in as we went. Once ashore we completed mid voyage talks, played cricket and went for a swim.

Tomorrow we will have a BBQ ashore at the Middle Percy Yacht Club, and then Command Day elections in preparation for Command Day Saturday/Sunday. The team are going well, and there has been an outbreak of morale onboard, which may have to be resolved by a keelhauling or two....

Until tomorrow, Ye Lubberly Lot,

Yours Aye,


Chris Galloway
Commander, RAN
Commanding Officer"
