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.
After a wind swept evening where a strong nor'easter helped us move to our destination, we woke up to see a monolith, similar to Uluru, looming on the horizon.
After the howling winds of yesterday, the winds abated overnight and by this morning we were becalmed on a painted ocean.
After three way talks last night some of the Youth Crew did a spot of fishing at anchor. Apart from a seal scaring away all the fish, not too much happened.
Overnight we motor-sailed towards the most southern part of the Australian mainland.
The expected weather front only amounted to about 20 knots and it brought heaps of rain as we entered Bass Strait last night. Today the pace was easier after the hectic pace of yesterday.
Today went really well.
Hi everyone.
