FABULOUS SCENERY AS YOUNG ENDEAVOUR MOTOR SAILED CLEAR OF SYDNEY HARBOUR.

THE WEATHER CONDITIONS WERE EASING AND ON DECK ALL FORE AND AFT SAILS WERE SET AND GROUND WAS MADE OFFSHORE.

THE AFTERNOON WAS SPENT SAILING OFF SYDNEY CONDUCTING TACKING DRILLS.

ALL WATCHES HAVE BEGAN TO SETTLE WELL INTO THEIR ROUTINES AND ARE TACKLING THE VARIETY OF TASKS EXTREMELY WELL.

AS THE WIND EASED YOUNG ENDEAVOUR STARTED THE 'IRON TOPSAILS' AND COMMENCED THE PASSAGE SOUTH.

AFTER WITNESSING A PICTURESQUE SUNSET AND TWILIGHT THE CHILL OF THE SW'LY BREEZE WAS CERTAINLY FELT BY ALL ON WATCH.

OVERNIGHT THE WIND FRESHENED REQUIRING SAIL TO BE SHORTENED AND ALL WATCHES MAINTAINED TRICKS ON THE HELM, LOOKOUT DUTIES AND IN SOME CASES PRACTICED FIXING THE SHIPS POSITION.

AFTER MORNING BRIEF THE SHIP SAILED INTO JERVIS BAY AND ANCHORED OFF DARLING ROADS.

A FEW YOUTH CREW ARE FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE SHIPS MOTION. THOUGH FORTUNATELY THEIR FELLOW SHIPMATES ARE TAKING EXCELLENT CARE OFF THEM.

ALL THE BEST
