ABSOLUTELY GRAND CONDITIONS AS YOUNG ENDEAVOUR MADE GROUND INTO QUEENSLAND WATERS. ON DECK A SERIES OF ROTATIONAL TACKING
DRILLS ALLOWED ALL YOUTH CREW THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE THE
EVOLUTION FROM A DIFFERENT STATION.

AFTER SUNSET ALL WATCHES WERE INDIVIDUALLY CHALLENGED IN PREPARTATION FOR COMMAND DAY FOCUSING ON TEAM DEVELOPMENT AND SELF ASSESSMENT.

BY EARLY MORNING THE SHIP WAS NORTH OF CAPE MORETON AND CLOSED UP FOR A SERIES OF DEMONSTRATIONAL TACKS WHERE THE EMPHASIS IS ON APPRECIATION OF THE DRILL FROM THE BRIDGE. A FABULOUS SET OF TACKS WITH ALL DRILLS BEING CONDUCTED VERY EFFICENTLY AND SAFELY. WELL DONE TO ALL.
