South Passage Daily Report

CLIENT: St Gregory’s College

VOYAGE NUMBER: 20161126

FROM: Sydney TO: Sydney

DATE: Day 4, 29 November 2016

POSITION: Yeoman’s Bay

Report by: White Watch

Our morning began from our anchoring point at Broken Bay. We then went exploring down the Hawkesbury River stopping briefly at Brooklyn port and Dangar Island. During our journey down the Hawkesbury we came across a sea eagle catching a fish as well as a seaplane landing right in front of the vessel.

By evening we dropped anchor at Yeoman’s Bay and had a swim and snorkel before White Watch took out the knotting competition. Despite the disadvantage with lack of people, we had the shortest amount of time and gained extra points for performing the knots with our eyes closed or one-handed.

Before bed, we were briefed about the Command Day tomorrow when we will be taking command of the vessel as we sail back to Sydney. The watch leaders were elected: Sam as white watch leader, Josh as blue watch leader as well as Jack becoming red watch leader. The sailing master was voted to be Ronan, the navigator Joseph and the captain Mitchell.
