Command Day ends – the seas are safe again!

Hi everyone,We finished our Command Day navigation at the entrance to Moreton Bay and then motored to anchor at the Tangalooma Resort just before lunch where the remainder of tasks were completed, including rigging a huge hammock and rowing ashore in the little rubber boat to ���reclaim’ some of the land for the youth of Australia.After lunch we all went ashore for a relaxing time at the resort ��� swimming, the beach, boating, cafes ��_ very nice indeed. But with salt in the veins of the Youth Crew the longing for the sea meant we were all back on board for a sausage sizzle and then a debrief of the Command Day. As I speak the various groups are getting into the nitty gritty but suffice to say our initial feed back is that the 24 hours was fun and people learnt a lot. From my perspective I thought the 24 hours went really well and reflected the positive approach the Youth Crew made.We will remain at anchor overnight ahead of an early departure for Bulimba, half way up the Brisbane River, to embark some guests for a half day sail. More on that tomorrow and until then, take care ��_YakVoyage Captain

Hot, hot, hot! 32 degrees inside the Ship today - no air conditioning and no wind! Humidity 71 per cent but feels like 99 per cent. Wind light from the north. No swell or sea here at anchor - a painted ship on a painted sea!
