COMMAND DAY VOYAGE 02/05COMMAND DAY WAS A DEFINITE SUCCESS FOR ALL OF US. IMMEDIATELY AFTER ELECTIONS OUR COMMAND TEAM WENT TO WORK KEEPING US HEADED FOR THE RIP, AND WE MADE SUCH GOOD TIME THAT AN EXTRA WAYPOINT NEEDED TO BE ADDED IN ORDER TO REACH OUR DESTINATION WITHOUT EXCESSIVE TIME TO SPARE. THE STAFF CREW TOOK OVER AGAIN BRIEFLY TO GET US THROUGH THE RIP AND TO OUR ANCHOR POINT. DURING THIS TIME WE WERE ABLE TO GET OUR ENTIRE YOUTH CREW ALOFT FOR A PHOTOGRAPH – A ROUSING SIGHT TO BE SURE. WEDNESDAY MORNING SAW US GET UNDERWAY WITH FIVE SAILS UP, AND A TERIFFIC CELEBRATION FOR YA’S BIRTHDAY WAS HELD – THANKS LARGELY TO OUR CHEFS. ALSO XO KRISTY’S ORGANISATIONAL GENIUS WAS INVALUABLE FORPUTTING TOGETHER THE DAY’S SCHEDULE AND NAVIGATOR JEFF ENSURED WE MADE ALL WAYPOINTS ON TIME AND WITH INCREDIBLE PRECISION. ALL CREW AND WATCH LEADERS DID AN EXEMPLARY JOB AND MADE COMMAND DAY TRULY A DAY TO REMEMBER.
