Our bosuns Charles and Marlies eyesplicing some ropes. Maintaining our way over 60 year old ships is almost as big of a part of our tall ship life as sailing is, but luckily its fun under the sun with a great team of people. πŸ‘·β˜€οΈπŸ˜Ž

Great day in the yard today. Everyone's working hard on taking care of our lovely ships. Here Klaudia and Amber are doing some final touches for Soren's new jiboom.

The view from the top. Not for the faint-hearted. Just kidding, it's not too bad with a safety harness on. In fact, climbing up the mast day after day is a sure way to overcome any fear of heights! πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

Swan's bosun changing the topgallant clue line which snapped a day earlier while setting the sails. Little incidents like this are not uncommon on our old (96yrs) but beloved Swan, but the positive side of things like this happening is that we as crew get some problems to solve which helps us understand our ships better. The engineering behind these traditional beauties is quite magnificent! 🀯

From our heaving line practice yesterday. Knowing how to tie and throw a heaving line is cruisal when docking our ships. In stronger winds, it is almost impossible to dock safely without getting the mainline on first which is the line attached to the heaving line. Once the mainline is on, it is easy for the skipper to maneuver the ship.

We went on a tall ship lunch cruise in Sydney harbour 2 days ago. Her name was Soren Larsen and she was an oldie, but well looked after. The cruise was 2 hours long, it included an ok buffet with limited choice of mains and really awesome brownies for dessert (I had 5 πŸ™ˆ) Great commentary from Andrew and some interesting trivia about Australian icons. Did you know that Sydney Opera House took 17 years to build due to its original design? This engineering masterpiece by a danish architect won the international competition for this building, and its 14 separate roofs are meant to form a sphere if put together.

Poor Trekker still missing her course after an adventurous training voyage up North with the Tribal Warriors. It didn't, however, stop us from having a great training day past the heads here at Sydney. Great learning, good day!

Post maintenance day pull up competitions and work outs are on! After we have all gained about a pound or two from eating the amazingly delicious left over brownies that we serve for the customers fresh from the owen, we decided that something needs to be done about it!! So we started doing work outs together! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Š All we have left to solve now is the left over Brownie problem πŸ™„ Any suggestions?
