South Passage Daily Report

CLIENT: The Gap SHS

VOYAGE NUMBER: 20170911

FROM: Manly TO: Manly

DATE: 13 Sept 2017

POSITION: Horseshoe Bay, Peel Is

Report by: Red Watch

On day 3 of the South Passage voyage, red watch was woken up at 6:00 am to start duty work. Due to the rust on the brass, the helm was polished, as well as the bell and the plaque leading into the galley. Afterwards, the rest of the watches were awoken at 6:30 am by the bugle, which was sounded by Jesse, and we had both a cold breakfast of cereal and a warm breakfast of toast, spaghetti and hash browns.

Soon thereafter, the South Passage set sail for Peel Island from Horseshoe Bay, and passed by Mud Island, St. Helena Island and Green Island. Several dolphins were seen throughout the journey. Reaches and gybes were used to travel downwind to the destination, and in the afternoon, the crew was transported to the shore of Peel Island for a swim. Coincidentally, another group of campers from the Gap State High School was staying on the island, and after a rendezvous and reunion with them we came back on board for another knot competition.

At the end of the day we had dinner, and were dismissed after our duty had finished. Later an election was held as the students prepared to take over command of South Passage on the final day and sail South Passage back to Manly.
