Youth Voyage 2 of 2012 departed Opua today with 11 timid trainees from all over the north. This trip will travel down the coast to Whanagrei, ending at Marsden Marina on Saturday next weekend. The weather looks like it will be favorable for a good sail down the coast, and there is excitement in the air for the possibility of heading to Great Barrier island, if we are lucky enough.

Today we have been orientating the trainees with the ship, and all are bonding well. With the likes of Marsha cooking and Captain Steve’s birthday, it’s gonna be a great week…
