FRESHENING BREEZE ALLOWED YOUNG ENDEAVOUR TO SAIL THE ENTIRE TIME BOUND FOR JERVIS BAY. ALL WATCHES EXPERIENCED WIND STRENGTHS ABOVE TWENTY FIVE KNOTS AND HANDLED THESE CONDITIONS EXTREMELY WELL.

MANY YOUTH CREW HAVE NOW MASTERED THE ART OF STEERING AND ARE FOSTERING AN APPRECIATION OF A DAY AT SEA ON A SQUARE RIG SHIP. ALL YOUTH CREW ARE DIVIDED INTO THREE WATCHES TO ALLOW THE SHIP TO SAIL CONTINIOUSLY.

AT THE CHANGE OF EACH WATCH THE SHIP CONDUCTED WHAT IS REFERRED TO AS A 'TWO WATCH TACK'. THIS ALLOWS THE SHIP TO CHANGE COURSE WITH REDUCED NUMBERS ON DECK. THIS FIRSTLY SHARPENS LINE HANDLING SKILLS AND ENABLES THE LONGEST OF WATCH A LITTLE MORE RESPITE IE SLEEP. EXCELLENT PASSAGE SPEED WAS MADE AND THE SHIP CAME TO ANCHOR BEFORE LUNCH OFF GREEN PATCH AT JERVIS BAY.

A VERY PICTURESQUE PART OF AUSTRALIA. SEA SICKNESS EASING WITH ONLY A FEW STILL FEELINNG THE EFFECTS OF THE SHIPS MOTION.

LATE NIGHT SHIFTS AND EARLY MORNING WAKE UPS - NOTHING LIKE IT TO
BRING THE WHOLE CREW TOGETHER. THIS IS WHAT I CALL LIVING LIFE FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE.
