Captain's Log
V07/21 Gladstone to Airlie Beach
7 February 2021

Start of Voyage

Good morning Shipmates,
Firstly let me apologise for not posting this last night as promised. As the name of this log entry suggests we are alongside in Gladstone awaiting the arrival of more youth crew members. The Ship enjoyed a thorough fresh water wash down overnight and I suspect our wet weather gear will get a good workout today.
Yesterday’s activities for the youth crew were focused on unpacking, undertaking Ship tours guided by their Watch Leaders and getting to know their fellow Youth Crew members. We are holding-off conducting some of our normal early voyage activities until the remaining crew members arrive so we don’t have to cover the same information again, but also so our still-to-join crew don’t feel too left out when they arrive. I will do some introductions. The following are the Staff Crew for Voyage 07/21 to Airlie Beach:

Myself – Captain Mike
Sail Master – Dion
Navigator – Emma
Watch Officer – Jemma
White Watch Leader – Phoebe
Red Watch Leader – Dan
Blue Watch Leader – Bobby
Engineer – Ben
Chef – Adam

The plan for today, Day 2 – today, is to remain alongside until the afternoon High Water, departing the Marina at 1600 (4pm) and proceeding to anchor in Gladstone Harbour.

Until tonight.

Yours Aye, Captain Mike
