Hi there Land Lubbers. Youth Crew member Aaron McCaskie here.

Well Command Day has been and gone, and what a 24 hours it was. We successfully navigated our way from Noosa to Mooloolaba and along the way managed to complete a number of side tasks which kept the days adventure interesting. We arrived at Mooloolaba this afternoon at 1300 under the safe command of Capt'n Stu the Guru. We sent our beach assault crew in the Zodiac to muster up some locals on the beach and have them sing the National Anthem, which was broadcast over the ships PA system. The youth crew battled it out with the staffies in a series of beach activities, of which the staffies (even though blatently cheating) claimed victory. We are now headed to our overnight anchor point off Mud Island in the beautiful Moreton Bay, and tomorrow will head into Brisbane in preparation for our half day sail on Wednesday and end of voyage on Thursday.

I personally have enjoyed every moment spent on the Young Endeavour. I would reccommend any young Australian who wants to challenge themselves and have a great adventure seriously consider taking a voyage on the Young Endeavour. All of the Youth Crew have had numerous challenges thrown at their feet throught this 10 day voyage, and all have dealt with these challenges and have no doubt come out of the experience as better people.I have made a heap of new friends and have met some great people, including staffies, from all over Australia and have shared with them an experience that will hold my fondest memories for a very long time.

I look forward to catching up with everyone on Thursday in Brisbane.

Over and Out
Aaarrrgghhrrron!!
Command Day Officer of Watch
