SAILING, 32 NAUTICAL MILES SE OF CAPE WILLOUGHBY.
WONDERFUL SAILING CONDITIONS. EVERYONE CONTINUED REFINING THEIR SAILING SKILLS AND YESTERDAY HAD THE FIRST SAIL THEORY PRESENTATION FOLLOWED BY ROPE RACES BEFORE CLOSING UP OVERNIGHT FOR MID VOYAGE TALKS AND THE BEAR EXERCISE. THIS IS WHERE THE WATCH ARE GIVEN A TASK AND THEY HAVE TO COLLECTIVELY WORKOUT A PLAN AND CONDUCT THE
ACTIVITY. ON COMPLETION THEY DEBRIEF THEMSELVES AND REVISE THEIR STRATEGY AND UNDERTAKE ANOTHER TASK FROM LESSONS EARNED. ALL WATCHES SURPRISED THEMSELVES WITH THE OUTCOME WELL DONE. THIS MORNING
IT WAS ROTATIONAL TACKS WHERE ALL YOUTH CREW ROTATED THROUGH THE VARIOUS STATIONS TO GAIN AN APPRECIATION OF TACKING THE SHIP.

YOUTH CREW IMPRESSIONS

IAIN, BRISBANE. CLIMBING OUT ON THE COURSE YARD AT NIGHT WITH THE STARS OUT WAS AWESOME.

VICKY, CANBERRA. CLIMBING ALOFT WHEN YOU ARE SCARED OF HEIGHTS IS A GREAT EXPERIENCE.



ALL THE BEST
