Ahoy Shipmates,Please find attached the Captains Log entry for the second half of Command Day written by Youth Crew Captain Chris and his team.Yours AyeCaptain GavCommand Day Continuedï¿½Day 8 V13/08Wellï¿½.what a change 12 hours makes!! After taking hold of the reins of the ship at 2200, we set our sights on waypoint three and onto the final destination of Caloundra. These targets were made all the more difficult by the 35 knot South-Westerly winds, the strongest of the voyage so far. These conditions forced us to tack multiple times during the night to account for an excess boat speed and near headwind!A tiring Youth Crew performed exceptionally well on deck in the difficult conditions, showing amazing perseverance and strength, to tack, furl and set sails through out the long night.An exhausted Youth Crew were quite glad to hand back control of the ship to staff at 1000 this morning, and take a well deserved rest!We are currently anchored off Bribie Island, looking forward to a full nights sleep and the final few days of our adventure aboard the Young Endeavour.Well done to all on a sterling effort for command day V13/08.Hi Fives,Second Command team:Chris, Dan and Jayson.
Currently at anchor just of Woorim Beach (Bribie Island) and experiencing light 5-8kt SW winds.

Thank you Tarvi, Kaeden and Matt for your narrative of today's events. Intentions are to remain at anchor in Hunters Bay, just off HMAS Penguin, home of the RAN Diving School, a place close to my heart, having spent many a day there under training as a young Officer! The plan is to weigh anchor and proceed to HMAS Waterhen, in Waverton, to pick up our Community Day Sailors from the Windgap Foundation and take them for a sail around the harbour for 3 hours. The Youth Crew will help us host our visitors and give them an experience of Young Endeavour. We will drop them back to Waverton and then proceed to anchor in the harbour where we will have a good view of the Bridge and the Opera House for the Youth Crew's last night onboard. Until tomorrow. Yours Aye, Captain Mike
