We had a well-earned rest overnight at Twofold Bay. At 0600 this morning we woke and got underway, motorsailing up the coast. The predicted headwinds didn't eventuate so we are making great time.
After a calm night we emerged from Bass Strait and arrived off Gabo Island and shortly thereafter entered New South Welsh waters.
Overnight we sailed east across Bass Strait and had a relaxing day with lots of deck games. We had a silent period in the afternoon where the generator was shut down and people could have a siesta.
The crossing of Bass Strait was not too bad, although for their first time the Youth Crew may say something different.
After little sleep, where, overnight the Youth Crew did some more climbing in preparation for doing it at sea, we left the wharf this morning and headed northwards.
Our new Youth Crew were welcomed onboard this afternoon and we got our welcoming activities straight underway.
We berthed this morning at 1000 and after the YC came down from aloft I presented Voyage Certificates to them. They were ecstatic about their trip and very sad to be leaving.
Command Day ended this morning after the YC successfully sailed the ship to an anchorage - and they made the passage here totally without the use of engines. Well done, team.

After I handed Command of Young Endeavour to Patrick, 23, of Queanbeyan and Voyage 17/00, the YC decided to make haste and we sailed from the anchorage in record time.
