Movies and Popcorn

Last night we stayed at anchor, watched a movie and ate popcorn.After happy hour this morning we sailed the ship from anchor and departed Western Port with all sail set. It was drizzling and cold but we had a great time setting all the sail.This afternoon I talked to the YC and explained the purpose of Command Day – they seem very excited by the prospect. We’ll stay at sea overnight and conduct a very important teamwork activity in the watches. Tomorrow, Wednesday, we will enter Port Philip Bay and anchor off Dromana. At the moment we are getting the strongest winds this Voyage and the YC are loving it.Stay tuned,Andrew Davis
