Well, much has happened since the last Journal entry and I feel bad that it has taken so long, but everyone has been very busy. At the end of the last journal entry I was wondering what the wind was going to do. Well, it seemed to have a habit of filling in becoming strong and then dying away again, keeping the crew quite busy. Then on Wednesday one of the volunteer crew fell out of his hammock and injured himself, so we had to make a detour towards Spring Beach, where we put him ashore to be treated. It was an active day for everyone. Alas, our dramas were not over. As we headed down the inside of Mercury Passage, between Maria Island and mainland Tasmania, the engineer noticed a problem with the starboard engine, so we headed to anchor for the night. The next two days were spent trying to limp under sail or power of one engine around Tasman Island and across Storm Bay. This struggle meant that we eventually had to pick up a tow and missed our official arrival into Hobart. However, by midday on Saturday we were able to cast off the towline just south of the Iron Pot and sailed in company with Windward Bound. The wind had swung just east of south allowing us a lovely run up the Derwent River. We set all plain sail except the Mizzen, giving the suburbs of Hobart a spectacle of the Duyfken sailing up the River. The crew did an excellent job of getting the sail in as we were off the entrance to Sullivans Cove. I then had the challenge of manoeuvring the ship into Kings Marina, with only one engine. Luckily the harbour authority gave the assistance of one of their lines boats, which was greatly appreciated. There was still a reasonable crowd gathered on the end of Elizabeth St Pier, even though we were over six hours later then expected, with much enthusiasm from the crowd. Of course, there were several familiar faces in the crowd this being my home port. The ship then spent four days alongside at Kings Marina and had a wonderful warm response from the public. However, the problems with the starboard shaft needed to be dealt with and so it was organised that on Thursday the ship was pulled up on the slipway at the Domain. Gary has returned for the passage back to Sydney and has taken command of Duyfken again.
