Day 6 – Eden

Ahoy there everyone, Overnight Young Endeavour remained at anchor in Twofold Bay opposite the Eden wood chip mill enabling a well deserved longer sleep for all. At 0630 all hands were on deck for an early morning activity prior to breakfast and morning brief. While the ship was receiving her daily internal clean the anchor was weighed and we transited the short distance to anchor adjacent the breakwater on the at the Eden fisherman wharfs. From here the Youth Crew were ferried ashore in the ships boat to explore the township of Eden. Whilst ashore each of the watches under the facilitation of their watch leader conducted mid voyage talks where each discussed individual and collective progression against their initial goals, then reset priorities and revised goals for the remainder of the voyage.After lunch the Youth Crew returned to the ship and we departed the anchorage, re commencing our passage north against a strong north east wind and a steep swell. Fore and aft sails were set as we beat our way along the Sapphire Coast making ground towards our next scheduled anchorage in pristine Jervis Bay marine park tomorrow evening. Until tomorrow evening.Yours ayeCaptain Damien
