FABULOUS CONDITIONS. ALL YOUTH CREW HAVE NOW EXPERIENCED BEING
ROARING FORTIES SAILORS FEELING THE CHILL OF THE POLAR MARITIME AIR MASS FROM ANTARTICA. RUGGED UP WELL ON WATCH ALL PROGRESSING EXTREMELY WELL IN NAVIGATION AND ROUTINES ONBOARD. THIS MORNING THE WINDS ABATED ALLOWING THE UPPER DECK RESTRICTIONS TO BE LIFTED AND PLENTY OF SAIL HANDLING. AFTER HAPPY HOUR IT WAS 'HANDS TO TACKING STATIONS' AND ALL ROTATED THROUGH THE BRIDGE DURING THESE DEMONSTRATIONS. ALL WELL AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE BEACH WALK AT WINE GLASS BAY.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

KIM, SYDNEY
WE'VE JUST ANCHORED IN WINE GLASS BAY AND ITS BEEN AN AMAZING TRIP SO FAR AND WE'RE ONLY HALF WAY. THIS HAS BEEN SUCH AN UNUSUAL AND WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE SO FAR AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO ENJOYING THE REST OF IT.

DYLAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
I JUST HAVE TO START WITH WOW. THIS JOURNEY HAS TAUGHT ME ALOT ABOUT GETTING UP AND BEING A PART OF A TEAM, TEAM WORK IS THE ONLY THING THAT KEEPS US ALL GOING AND YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU DONT PUT YOUR FULL EFFORTS IN THEN SOMEONE HAS TO DO YOUR SHARE. THE SIGHTS HAVE BEEN GREAT THE PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL AND THE SEAS HAVE BEEN SHOCKING BUT THIS IS ALL PART OF THE REASON WE JOINED UP.

MICHAEL, GRENFELL
THERE IS SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL ABOUT WATCHING THE BOW SPRIT DIVE UNDER THE WATER, WHILE SITTING OUT ON THE COURSE YARD. IT'S
BRILLIANT.

T#, EDITHVALE, MELBOURNE
I NEVER THOUGHT THAT SAILING BASS STRAIT WOULD BE SUCH AN AN
AMAZING EXPERIENCE, ACHIVING MY DREAM WITH SUCH AMAZING PEOPLE HAS BEEN SUCH A PLEASURE AND HONOUR.
