FROM: Townsville TO: Cairns

DATE: 3 June 2017

POSITION: Horseshoe Bay, Magnetic Island

Report by: Blue Watch

Around 6:30am-7:00am we all arrived at the Peace Centre, where we would then leave for Townsville at 7:00am. When we got to Cardwell we stopped to get something to eat for breakfast/lunch. After an hour we got back on the bus to continue our trip to Townsville and we arrived in Townsville around 12:30pm. Once we arrived we met the crew and did some drills on the boat. After the drills we relaxed on the boat then used all the knowledge that we gathered from the drills to sail. A short while after departing from the Townsville Wharf on our course towards Magnetic Island, we practiced a Man Over Board drill. As we sailed towards our destination, we continued to improve on our sailing skills that we had just acquired. We continued to tack and gybe towards Magnetic Island. We then laid the anchor down in Horseshoe Bay and prepared for dinner.
