CO Young Endeavour LCDR Gavin
Dawe said it was a great race and a great
opportunity for the local community to
see two tall ships together under full sail.
"The youth crew aboard Yo u n g
Endeavour thoroughly enjoyed the expe-
rience of being able to race another tall
ship and put into practice the skills they
have gained during their voyage," LCDR
The regatta was closely contested
and both crews joined in the spirit of
the event, firing simulation rounds from
their cannons as they passed mid-race.
The Sydney-based Young Endeavour
was visiting Western Australia for the
first time since 2001 as part of a circum-
navigation of Australia.

that both FR Branch and DEFGLIS
were relevant and well positioned to
respond to the demands of a chang-
ing work environment.
Participant LSCIS Sam Duncan
said the education of all Defence
members about what diversity is all
about was important.
"We want to make sure it's not
just a throw away word because it's
topical," he said.
CPOWTR O'Brien ended the
"FR and DEFGLIS have shown
that the ADF has embraced the
diversity within and shown the
wider community how inclusive the
ADF has become."
