PAST 24 HOURS
TWENTYFOUR YOUNG AUSTRALIANS JOINED YOUNG ENDEAVOUR IN PORTLAND FOR THEIR ADVENTURE UNDER SAIL BOUND FOR ADELAIDE. LAST NIGHT EVERYONE STARTED CLIMBING ALOFT AND SOME EVEN MANAGED TO REACH THE UPPER YARD.

ALL YOUTH CREW KEPT OVERNIGHT WATCHES AND CONTINUED CLIMBING ALOFT, SHIP TOURS AND LEARNING TO TIE KNOTS. THE SHIP DEPARTED PORTLAND THIS MORNING AND COMMENCED MOTOR SAILING. ON DECK THE SAFETY PRESENTATION AND LINE HANDLING DRILLS ARE BEING CONDUCTED. A FEW ARE STARTING TO EXPERIENCE SEA SICKNESS AND OTHER SHIP MATES ARE KEEPING
A CLOSE EYE ON THEM.

ALL THE BEST
