V12/21 Gladstone to Brisbane

Day 11 – Fare thee well shipmates

Well, ladies and gents, boys and girls, today is the final day of V12/21 and shiver me timbers (ye olde nautical saying), what a voyage it’s been. We’ve had some great weather, some not so great weather, some fantastic sailing and amazing shipmates. I’m sure the youthies will remember this voyage forever. Youth crew did one final happy hour this morning, to ensure a clean ship for the oncoming youth crew of V13/21, which commences Saturday. Then at 0900 we sailed into the Brisbane River and Youthies personed (manned) the yards, signifying that we intend no harm ashore 😉 We then berthed alongside HMAS Moreton at 1000. I’ve had a fantastic voyage and I know the other staff members did too. Thanks to the persistence, resilience and adaptability of the youthies, because they are the ones who made it a success. Thanks must also go to the staff crew who did an amazing job throughout… well done everyone. Well that’s it from me, but like I said to the gang today, don’t be sad because it’s over, smile because it happened… you may be leaving Young Endeavour but the Young Endeavour never leaves you. Fair winds and following seas. Yours Aye, Captain Adam Charlie Farley+
