SAILING, 64 NAUTICAL MILES DUE SOUTH OF BAIRNSDALE, VICTORIA.

PAST 24 HOURS

DEPARTED FLINDERS AND MOTOR SAILING IN FAIRLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE CONDITIONS. EVERYONE CONTINUED WITH LINE AND SAIL HANDLING DURING THE AFTERNOON. MANY YOUTH CREW HAD NEVER SEEN THE SUN SETTING OVER THE
OCEAN. THIS EVENINGS SKY WAS ABSOLUTELY BREATH TAKING. OVERNIGHT ALL WATCHES CONTINUED TO PROGRESS IN CLIMBING ALOFT, TRICKS ON THE HELM AND CONDUCTING A GOOD SET OF SHIP ROUNDS. EARLY MORNING RAIN
WELCOMED EVERYONE DURING MORNING BRIEF. ANOTHER FABULOUS DAY SAILING AT SEA AND AS A BONUS KNOW ONE IS SEA SICK.
