COMMAND DAY COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY. 72 PEOPLE
GATHERED ON MORETON ISLAND TO SING THE ANTHEM (THANKS TO THE BEACH ASSAULT TEAM), AND A GIANT HAMMOCK WAS CONSTRUCTED THAT HELD ALL YOUTHIES AND STAFFIES AT ONCE.THE YOUTHIE-BUILT RAFT WAS NOT QUITE SUCH A
SUCCESS... MOST IMPORTANTLY WE MADE IT TO OUR DESTINATION ON TIME AFTER A HUGE ALL-NIGHT EFFORT BY THE YOUTHIES.
CONGRATS TO ALL FOR MAKING IT THROUGH AN EXTREMELY BUSY 24 HOURS ON MINIMAL SLEEP AND ACHIEVING OUR GOAL. BIG THANKS TO THE SKIP, XO, NAV, WATCH OFFICERS (KATIE, NORSK, AND HUGH), WATCH LEADERS, AND ALL THE GRP'S FOR A FANTASTIC JOB (AND TO THE CHEFS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL FOOD).
AFTER HANDING THE SHIP BACK OVER TO THE STAFFIES (THEY WERE EVENTUALLY RELEASED AFTER SOME FANTASTIC SINGING), WE BERTHED STARBOARD SIDE TO BULIMBA NAVY HEADQUARTERS AND WELCOMED MEMBERS OF LIFESTREAM ABOARD THE Y/E FOR A HALF DAY SAIL. FUN MORNING HAD BY ALL.

YOURS AYE
