Day 3 – Bass Strait

Ahoy there everyone, Welcome to day three of the voyage. Overnight Young Endeavour continued motor sailing south under fore and aft sails. At sunrise the ship was abeam Green Cape south of Eden under clear blue skies with several competitors still in sight. At morning brief each crew members drew two of the Sydney to Hobart yachts in a line honours sweep stake. At 1200 we crossed the New South Wales Victorian border, shortly after the wind backed to the North and we set our three square sails shut down the engines and commenced a square run into Bass Strait making good seven knots as we continue to make ground towards Tasmania overnight.Until tomorrow evening, take care.Yours ayeCaptain Damien
