Happy Birthday YOUNG ENDEAVOUR
Hello to all yet again, from Sandra, Gemma and Jemima! We are currantly preparing for the Young Endeavour’s Birthday Party. However, much has transpired since the last entry. Command day concluded with minimal wind resulting in difficult sailing, an amazing team effort and a birthday/ farwell party for Chris. We are however very good at bribes resulting in our early arrival at our destination point, allowing us time to make a hammock to hold all crew and staffies. Massive thank you to captains Arjun and Aleks, Xo’s Emma and Austin, Nav’s Ally, Vince, Lloyd and Gemma, Watch Leaders Sandra, Matt and Kodi and the chefs RAchel, Lochie and Jemima. After a debrief and BBQ dinner on deck we headed into Darling Harbour for a rehearsal for Australia Day! (YAY!) then back to our anchorage at the base of the harbour bridge. All Hands were on deck for a full cleaning morning followed by a rehearsal for tonights party. Mums and dads out there (or anyone else from Narrabri) keep an eye out for channel 7 news and someone please tape it as we are featured. Also please watch us on tv on Australia day too!!I like the cut of your jib!Gemma, Sandra and Jemima!
Cloudy, warm, and cool

STS Young Endeavour is, by the definition and origin of her name, about Aussie youths trying hard to achieve something difficult. This voyage certainly provided that... and then some. A challenging experience from all angles and areas. Yet the Youth Crew prevailed and found success. They should therefore be justifiably proud of themselves for persevering, seeing the silver lining and never wavering in their mission to have a great adventure. I am very proud of all of them and I'm sure you are too!
9 Days ago 23 Youth Crew from all over Australia, came together to sail this vessel, have fun and challenge themselves. They have not only done that, but have faced and overcome fears, and learnt a lot about themselves and each other.
They leave with new skills, improved persistence, resilience and adaptability, as well as generally knowing they are more capable than what they probably thought. And of course, having made great new friends - most probably, friends for life. It never gets old for us staff members, as we truly love our work.
Fair winds and following seas.
