Twofold Bay off Eden NSW

Ahoy Shipmates,After an exiting sail overnight we came to anchor in Twofold Bay off Eden NSW, shortly before 0900 this morning. The wind in the Bass Strait reached gusts of over 60kts, and the seas were huge – everyone is here tired but happy for the experience.Today the pace has slowed down a bit, with Happy Hour, Rope Races, and a sail theory lecture this morning. This afternoon everyone has gone ashore to visit the whale museum at Eden, and to take a tour of the Bark Endeavour, which is alongside at Eden wharf. It is interensting to note the contrast between the two ships, one modern and comfortable, one old and cramped – I don’t hear too many complaints about the accommodation in YOUNG ENDEAVOUR anymore.Tomorrow we will sail for historic HMAS CRESWELL in Jervis Bay where we will have a sports afternoon and BBQ ashore. On the way we will complete the last of our preparations for Command Day during what also promises to be a fast and exciting sail. Until tomorrow,Yours Aye,Chris Chris GallowayLieutenant Commander, RANCommanding Officer
