Great Weather, Open Water

Current situation at 1800: Today brought great weather, open water and relief from constant tacking – or so we thought. In the morning I gave the YC a presentation on sail theory and after lunch and a much needed andawaited siesta we did something totally different -we tacked four more times.This time it was out of learning and not necessity. The YC witnessed the ship going through the intricate motions of tacking and are gradually developing a better understanding of the ship.Tonight they will go through an important teamwork exercise on our way through a group of islands leading to Port Lincoln. PS the sickies are over it – nearlyStay tuned,Andrew Davis
