Weighed anchor, proceeded to Balls Head Bay. Youth Crew laid aloft when we went under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
We weighed anchor in Watsons Bay at 0800 and commenced our passage to Balls Head Bay. We put the Youthies aloft for our transit under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We berthed at HMAS Waterhen at Waverton at 1000. During the remainder of the forenoon we did 'happy hour' and undertook the Harbour Furl of the square sails.

After lunch we undertook the End of Voyage chats in our watches and facilitated by our watch leaders. The Youthies then went ashore for a walk, an opportunity for a coffee, followed by some team games organised by Sail Master Kyle.

On return to the Ship we had the traditional last night onboard pizza night. This was followed y the two outstanding Command Day tasks, the voyage slide show, the poem and the song. These were all magnificently produced and received rapturous applause from the whole crew.

The intention is to remain here overnight, sailing at 0800 in the morning for a harbour cruise and returning to our HMAS Waterhen berth at 1000 to finish the voyage.

Until tomorrow.

Yours Aye, Captain Mike
