DEPARTED SYDNEY HARBOUR AND MOTOR SAILED SOUTH OVERNIGHT IN FAIRLY STRONG CONDITIONS WITH ONLY THE FORE STAYSAIL, MAIN STAYSAIL AND TRAIL SAIL SET. ON DECK WATCHES WERE CLOSED UP KEEPING TRICKS ON THE HELM, LOOKOUT DUTIES AND CONDUCTING ROUNDS IN BETWEEN SAIL SETTING AND TACKING SHIP OVERNIGHT. ALL WATCHES WERE KEPT EXTREMELY BUSY AND MAKING A FABULOUS EFFORT. THOSE WHO WERE FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE SHIP'S MOTION ARE SLOWLY RECOVERING AS THE SEAS AND SWELL GRADUALLY ABAITED OVERNIGHT.

AT SUNRISE ALL FORE AND AFT SAILS WERE SET AS YOUNG ENDEAVOUR PASSED JERVIS BAY. ANOTHER SURPRISE ON THE HORIZON WAS SIGHTED AS HMAS HAWKESBURY (ONE OF THE NAVY'S NEW MINE HUNTERS) CLOSED TO THE DELIGHT OF ALL YOUTH CREW.

MORNING BRIEF PROVIDED A WONDERFUL INCITE INTO THE DAY AND SHORTLY AFTERWARDS A SNAPPY SET OF ROPE RACES.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

MELINDA, RAZORBACK
THE VOYAGE SO FAR HAS BEEN CHALLENGING SO FAR WITH THE STRONG WINDS AND ROUGH SEAS, ALTHOUGH TODAY IS MUCH NICER. IT HAS BEEN
INTERESTING LEARNING ABOUT THE SAILS. CLIMBING ALL THE WAY TO THE
TOPGALLANT YARD THE FIRST NIGHT WAS GREAT FUN. HI TO ALL THE FAMILY AND SAM.

HI ITS DANIEL HERE,
ALTHOUGH THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS WERE ROUGH TODAY HAS BEEN AWESOME AND WE HAVE MANAGED TO SPOT A POD OF DOLPHINS AND A COUPLE OF WHALES. HI TO MUM DAD AND REBECCA.


YOURS AYE
