In record time -- and for the last time on this voyage -- the ship was turned from a museum into a working ship.
The crew have all sailed on the ship previously, and we are looking forward to a quick run down the coast to be in the Fremantle area for the weekend. There's a gala welcome home on Sunday morning!
The response to the ship in Geraldton has been really warm. The strong welcome the ship and her crew have received in all ports - but especially in WA - has been so heartening.
Tomorrow at 0800 we let go of the lines and proceed out to sea for the last time on this amazing voyage.
