Pizza, Climbing and Knots

Current situation at 1800: We had a great Easter in Adelaide celebrating during the Encounter 2002 festival and seeing our friends in the other Tall Ships in port – it certainly was a great gathering.Now we are focussed on our next Voyage from Adelaide to Adelaide and this should be a special one because we will participate in the Encounter Festival activities in Victor Harbour next weekend.Our Youth Crew (YC) joined early today and we sailed as a huge group of onlookers waved goodbye.Now we are at anchor and the YC are getting to know their ship and shipmates. Polly, the Master Pizza Maker, cooked a great meal and we are now ready to go climbing and knot tying.My champion team for this Voyage are as follows: Nath – XO, Mhanda – swimgirl, boatgirl, Eddie (his 48th and last Voyage) – White Watch Leader, Barry – Red WL, Karen – Blue WL, Rags – Engineer,Polly – pizza maker.Welcome to Chris Hirst who joins us from the UK (Yorkshire to be precise) and is on exchange for the next two Voyages as part of the Australian- UK Sail Training Association Annual exchange of young tall ship sailors between the two countries. Welcome Hirsty, CJ…Stay tuned,Andrew Davis
