ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS SAILING CONDITIONS. INITIALLY WITH ALL PLAIN SAILS IE BOTH HEADSAILS, T'WEEN MAST STAYSAILS, MAIN SAIL AND TOPSAIL. THROUGHOUT LAST NIGHT THE SHIP KEPT WELL CLEAR OF THUNDERSTORMS AND REDUCED SAIL. AT THE CHANGE OF EACH WATCH THE SHIP CONDUCTED A WEAR WITH ONLY TWO WATCHES. THIS IS A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT FOR YOUTH CREW AS THIS REFLECTS THEIR UNDERSTANDING AND ABILITY TO WORK WELL AS A TEAM. DURING THE FORENOON GROUND WAS MADE TOWARDS BROKEN BAY ANCHORAGE AS INDIVIDUAL WATCHES WERE CONDUCTING SETTING AND FURLING DRILLS. ALL DRILLS WERE CONDUCTED IN A SOUND CONTROLLED MANNER WITH NOMINTED SAILS SET AND FURLED CORRECTLY. ALL WELL.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

LISA, BERRIGAN
WHAT AN ADVENTURE. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT WE AS THE YOUTH CREW TEAM COULD LEARN HOW TO SAIL THIS TALL SHIP IN TEN DAYS, TOMORROW IS OUR BIGGEST TEST YET WHEN WE TAKE FULL CONTROL OF THE SHIP AND SAIL INTO PORT JACKSON. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE.

SEAN, TOWNSVILLE
MADE NEW FRIENDS, ON A ONCE IN A LIFE TIME TRIP. DOING THINGS THAT I WOULD NEVER DO WHAT MORE COULD ONE WANT?

KATE, NEWCASTLE
THE STAFF AND YOUTH CREW MAKE IT AN EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE. CANT WAIT TO SAIL THRU SYDNEY HEADS.

ADAM, CANBERRA
ITS AN EXITING TRIP WITH ALL THE WEATHER CHANGES. CLIMBING THE MAST WHILE THE BOAT IS ROCKING AROUND AND THE WIND BLOWING IN YOUR FACE. WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT OUT OF AN ADVENTURE.
