Tsunami Warning

Hi Everyone, Just a quick entry in the Captains Log to let you know that we are fine and have not felt any effect of the Tsunami. We are currently located 15nm to the south east of Saint Helens Point and are currently enjoying light south westerly winds with a 1m swell. The sun has just come out and we are close enough to land to be able to appreciate the spectacular coastline of the East Coast of Tasmania. Overnight we experienced some heavy weather sailing but the Youth Crew have came through it with flying colours and now all signs of seasickness have miraculously disappeared. This morning we again set all fore and aft sails then completed a good set of rotational tacks. As I write this log the Youth Crew are busy with ���mid voyage talks�� and it is hoped that the wind will freshen this afternoon so that we can achieve a set of demonstrational tacks. This activity gives the Youth Crew the opportunity to come to the bridge and witness the tacking of the ship from the commands perspective and is an important demonstration of ship handling prior to the commencement of Command Day.Later this evening we hope to anchor in the spectacular Wineglass Bay were we plan to remain overnight.Until tomorrow, take careYours AyeCaptain Gav
