VOYAGE NUMBER: 20170724
FROM: Townsville TO: Townsville
DATE: 27 July 2017
POSITION: Pioneer Bay, Orpheus Island
Report by: Group D Blue Watch
We made an early start of 4am. Blue team started with polishing the brass on the helm. We motored in very windy and freezing conditions across icy waters to Lucinda Wharf and filled our water tanks. As we were raising sails, we got wet by the water that was coming over the bow. As we took down the sails, we also saw a manta ray in the ocean as we were prepared to anchor.
Olivia, Michael and Joseph were very good bosuns and organised their watch groups well. We had our highs and lows in knot tying comp today. The groups tied in the first round and in the second round, White watch won, Blue watch coming in second and Red watch third. We will be sure to be more accurate tomorrow.
