STU (TOOWOOMBA) - AT LONG LAST (DAY) LAND IS IN SIGHT (KING ISLAND)
THE SEA LEGS ARE STARTING TO KICK IN AND AFTER THREE DAYS OF ROCKING BACK AND FORWARD BUMPS AND BRUISES ARE COMMONPLACE. THE TEAMS ARE REALLY STARTING TO COME TOGEATHER AND I AM CONFIDENT THAT WE KNOW POSSESS THE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING TO TAKE CHARGE.

ANDREW (MELBOURNE) WE HAVE HAD SOME GREAT SAILING OVER THE LAST TWO DAYS/NIGHTS. THE SWAYING OF THE TALL SHIP HAVE MADE FOR SOME EXCITING CLIMBS UP THE FORE-MAST. TODAY WE LAND IN KING ISLAND, WITH SOME SHELTER FROM THE HIGH SWELLS.

SALLY (CANBERRA) IS GREAT TO BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE GREAT FOOD AGAIN
TODAY. HIGHLIGHT SO FAR WAS THE GROUP BUZZ ON THE FIRST NIGHT AFTER CLIMBING AND SITTING OUT ON THE SAILS. WE WERE ALL FEELING A LITTLE GREEN YESTERDAY, BUT THE GREENESS HAS WORN OFF NOW AND WE ARE ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO ENJOYING THE CREME DE LA CREME AT KING ISLAND. ESPECIALLY THOSE OF US WHO HAVE BEEN UP SINCE THE 4AM WATCH BEGAN THIS MORNING...
