Current situation at 1800:Overnight the YC went aloft for the second time and most made it to the top and out onto the yards. The cappuccino machine has yet to be found.Today we got up early and started work on getting to know the ship, her lines and sails. We set sails and got into the swing of calling out the orders so we could all work as a team and set theright sail at the right time.We have a small technical hitch that prevented us from getting going but our eager techicians are developing a solution and we will sail very early on Wednesday for two days on the beautiful turquoise waters of Spencer Gulf. In lieu we spent the evening getting to know our shipmates better with a round of ‘three way talks’ and later on we will progress our sailing knowledge and, who knows, climb aloft again in search of a nice cuppa.Stay tuned,Andrew Davis

Thank you Tarvi, Kaeden and Matt for your narrative of today's events. Intentions are to remain at anchor in Hunters Bay, just off HMAS Penguin, home of the RAN Diving School, a place close to my heart, having spent many a day there under training as a young Officer! The plan is to weigh anchor and proceed to HMAS Waterhen, in Waverton, to pick up our Community Day Sailors from the Windgap Foundation and take them for a sail around the harbour for 3 hours. The Youth Crew will help us host our visitors and give them an experience of Young Endeavour. We will drop them back to Waverton and then proceed to anchor in the harbour where we will have a good view of the Bridge and the Opera House for the Youth Crew's last night onboard. Until tomorrow. Yours Aye, Captain Mike
