An early start for our sail trainees who were awakened at 0400 hours! All on deck to weigh anchor and head out on this glorious mild autumn day. Two hours in, and Penelope and Kieren are at the helm with Steve – the rest have returned to their bunks for another sleep!

There are big swells but winds are steady at around 12 knots. Lines are out the back trawling for bait and all is well on board.
