PAST 24 HOURS
EXPERIENCING WONDEFULL SAILING CONDITIONS WITH ALL FORE AND AFT SAILS SET. ALL YOUTH CREW ARE PROGRESSING WELL IN LINE AND SAIL HANDLING. YESTERDAY EVERYONE CLOSED UP TO TACKING STATIONS AND SUCCESSFUL TACKED THE SHIP, A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT. OVERNIGHT ON WATCH ALL YOUTH CREW HONED THEIR SAILING SKILLS, CONDUCTED ROUNDS, KEPT TRICKS ON THE WHEEL AND EVEN MADE BREWS (TEA AND COFFEE) FOR THE WATCH. TODAY WAS PETE'S BIRTHDAY AND IN TALL SHIP TRADITION A WONDERFUL CHOCOLATE CAKE WAS BAKED BY STONEY THE SHIP'S CHEF FOR
EVERYONE TO ENJOY. THE SHIP IS SHAPING A COURSE FOR ROBE IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA.
