YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

ALEX, CANBERRA. THE VOYAGE HAS BEEN PRETTY FULL ON THESE PAST FEW
DAYS, NOT MUCH SLEEP AND A LOT OF SAILING. TODAY IS SLIGHTLY MORE
RELAXING, BEUTIFUL OUT IN THE SUNSHINE. LOOKING FORWARD TO ANCHORING AT LADY ELLIOT ISLAND EITHER TOMORROW OR MONDAY. GOING TO CLIMB ALOFT NOW.

THOMAS, AGNES WATER. ANYONE LOOKING TO EXPAND THEIR HORIZONS HAVE A GO THIS IS A TRIP OF A LIFE TIME BUT IT IS DEMANDING.

MEGAN, HERVEY BAY. FUN FUN AND MORE FUN SO FAR, ADVETURE OF A LIFE TIME, I HAVE ACHIEVED MANY NEW AND EXCITING THINGS, COMING ON BOARD HAS BEEN THE BEST THING I HAVE DONE IN MY LIFE.

MITCH, CAIRNS. WHEN I GOT ON I WASNT SURE I WANTED TO DO THIS. I WAS HOMESICK AND I WAS SEASICK AS WELL. BUT I AM NOT GLAD I STUCK IT OUT BECAUSE THIS IS TURNING INTO THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE.
