After a month-long maintenance period YOUNG ENDEAVOUR is back at
sea again. My thanks go to my Staff Crew who have worked incredibly
hard to get the ship looking pristine again and working well.

Our new Youth Crew (YC) joined us in the afternoon and we got
underway with a big crowd of family and friends to wave us off.
Tonight we shall stay at anchor and get to know the ship and each
other. The YC have the minor task of climbing the masts tonight and
tying knots while they are up there.

My champion team for this Voyage to Brisbane comprises of Nath -
XO, Aaron - Nav, Mhandii (doing her last Voyage) - Bosun and White
Watch Leader, Karen - Blue WL, Stewie - Red WL, Barry (doing his last
Voyage too) - Engineer and Polly ('don't call me buttons') - Chef.
A big welcome goes out to Lauren Hindmarsh who assists Mhandii and
will take over her jobs and also to Luke Marthick who is Watch
Officer this Voyage (and keen for a swim) and a master at sailing
Tasar dinghies.

Stay tuned,
Andrew R. Davis
