Carn the Wallabies
What an awesome day! Perfect sailing conditions on a beautiful Queensland day. We had whales, dolphins, a tack, happy hour and an introduction to Nanna and all before 1000. You couldnâ€™t get a nicer day with a steady 10-15 kt breeze which backed nicely to the NE that allowed us to set the squares having already set the fisherman staysail and main gaff topsail. Joel provided a brief on Rule of the Road in the afternoon and best of all we had a couple of hours of silent sailing with all machinery totally shut down which is pure bliss. We are now sailing under fore and aft sails towards Hervey Bay where we will anchor sometime around lunchtime tomorrow and just to cap off a beaut day before the mast we have just heard the Wallabies have had a huge win over the USA. Not rugby giants but after Ireland Iâ€™ll take any win.

STS Young Endeavour is, by the definition and origin of her name, about Aussie youths trying hard to achieve something difficult. This voyage certainly provided that... and then some. A challenging experience from all angles and areas. Yet the Youth Crew prevailed and found success. They should therefore be justifiably proud of themselves for persevering, seeing the silver lining and never wavering in their mission to have a great adventure. I am very proud of all of them and I'm sure you are too!
9 Days ago 23 Youth Crew from all over Australia, came together to sail this vessel, have fun and challenge themselves. They have not only done that, but have faced and overcome fears, and learnt a lot about themselves and each other.
They leave with new skills, improved persistence, resilience and adaptability, as well as generally knowing they are more capable than what they probably thought. And of course, having made great new friends - most probably, friends for life. It never gets old for us staff members, as we truly love our work.
Fair winds and following seas.
