Today was frreeezing. Well, it was about 18C but it didn’t stop us from having a swim to cool off after a hard day’s yakka learning the ropes. The Youth Crew have had a vertical learning curve to contend with, managing with only a few hours sleep. They are doing really well and this afternoon we sailed by Green Island and tonight we should pass Cape Tribulation, on our way to Cooktown.Youth crew entry by Conor Gilligan from Seaham and Sam Immens from Seaforth.Today was our first full day at sea. The weather is great, the crew are all really amazing. We did our first real sailing today. Learning all the names of the sheets and sail sets was a challenge, especially after only having had three, yes ‘3’ hours sleep! Only one person has yaked so far and it was Conor (she shouldn’t have had the extra peach crumble :)Had a swim off the side of the ship. Looking forward to a day exploring an island somewhere on our course. All the other youth seem as excited as us, and we are getting to know them well.From Conor and SamPS to my friends who didn’t make it and my family having a great time for you as well. luv samPS hello everyone….I’m thinking of you all back home in the cold, and at good old uni.

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
