Captain's Log 23 April 2001

Situation at 1800: At anchor on the Northern Coast of Keswick Is. Wind Nil, clear skies, temp 25C.
After a very enjoyable stay in the new Mackay Marina we embarked our youth crew for the voyage to Townsville. Once we departed the Harbour we headed to the NE toward the small St Bees Island group. Along the way, our youth crew spent their time getting to know each other, learning their way around the ship and eating their first meal at sea.

Once we reached the anchorage here, all decided to climb aloft the foremast - straight up into the darkness. All are now safely back on deck and are settling into the night-time watch-keeping routines of shipboard life at sea.

Until tomorrow
