THE LAST SIX DAYS HAVE LED UP TO THIS ONE DAY WHEN THE TWENTY FOUR YOUTH CREW TAKE OVER THE SHIP FOR 24 HOURS. TENSION BUILT THROUGHOUT THE ELECTIONS FOR LEADERSHIP POSITIONS. WHEN THE MORNING ARRIVED THE TENSION ESCALATED WITH IDEAS FLYING EVERYWHERE. THE SHIP WENT ROUND AND ROUND, BACKWARDS, FORWARDS AND UNTIL FINALLY WE WERE ON OUR WAY TOWARD BUNDABERG. THE DAY WAS CHALLENGING WITH OURTEAMWORK SKILLS BEING TESTED TO THE MAX. THE CREW HAD SEVERAL TASKS TO COMPLETE INCLUDING HAMMOCK MAKING, MURAL DRAWING AND HAVING TWENTY CREW ALOFT. THE DAY WAS A SUCCESS WITH YOUTH CREW GAINING KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO COMPROMISE AND WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM TO ACHIEVE A DESIRED OUTCOME. RED WATCH ROCKS MORE THAN BLUE AND WHITE. HA, HA,HA.

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
