WINDS WERE FRESHENING
PAST 24 HOURS

YESTERDAY YOUNG ENDEAVOUR WAS MOTOR SAILING TO DROMANA. ON DECK THE WINDS WERE FRESHENING REQUIRING STORM SAILS TO BE BENT ON BY THE WATCH ON DECK. EXCELLENT GROUND WAS MADE BY MID AFTERNOON AND THE SHIP ANCHORED OFF SAFETY BEACH FOR THE NIGHT. EVERYONE ONE MAINTAINED SEA WATCHES OVERNIGHT AND A MULTITUDE ACTIVITIES WERE CONDUCTED BY THE WATCHES. BLUE WATCH CAPTURED THE SUNSET ALOFT WHILE RED WATCH BENT ON THE FORE STAYSAIL AND WHITE WATCH COMPLETED EVERYONE THROUGH ROUNDS. THIS MORNING THE WIND HAD ABAITED AND YOUNG ENDEAVOUR WEIGHED ANCHOR AND PROCEEDED TO SEA AND CLEARED THE RIP (PORT PHILLIP HEADS) BEFORE LUNCH. ALL WELL.
