Captain's Log
V12/17 Mackay to Brisbane
26 September 2017

Final Day

Ahoy there Shipmates, Sail Master Bagers woke the crew at 0630 for a quick early morning activity for the Youthies, then it was breakfast and pack their bags. After the final Morning Brief, during which Salty explained the origin of the expression ‘2 – 6 Heave’, and Happy Hour for the Voyage, Young Endeavour departed HMAS Moreton pontoon at 0900 and the Youth Crew laid aloft in the old Naval tradition of ‘Manning the Yards’ for the formal arrival. We berthed back at Moreton at 1000 in front of family and friends. Following a brief ceremony we said our final farewells to the Youth Crew of Voyage 12/17. It has been a magnificent journey and one not to be forgotten. The Ship will remain in Brisbane until Mon 02 Oct when we will embark a new Youth Crew for Voyage 13/17, Brisbane to Newcastle. Yours Aye Captain Mike
