CLIENT: The Hills Grammar School
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20171218
FROM: Sydney TO: Sydney
DATE: 19th December 2017
POSITION: Long Beach, Jervis Bay
REPORT BY :White Watch
A couple members of the watch woke up at 4am to anchor watch and a stunning sunrise at Port Hacking. We then proceeded to learn and smash the other teams in the reef knotting competition thanks to Phil, carried by Matty Ren himself! Later in the morning we went swimming and saw dolphins on our sail out. The conditions were easy until the late afternoon when we began to be pummelled by waves and high winds.
We are glad to report that only two of our team members were feeling crook but luckily they recovered before any incidents occurred. MVP of White Watch is Kavi for his keen deck checking skills. (although he got a tim tam with false pretences) Dan Ambler had a small boo-boo and let a medallion go for a swim unfortunately (never to come back). J
All our meals made by the man of the moment, Hugh our cook, and were amazing and kept everyone satisfied. Dinner was our favourite meal, although it was quite an entertainment to eat dinner at a 45 degree angle, thanks to the choppy waves at the time.
We just arrived in Jervis Bay, after having to lower sails with strong gales and choppy swells. Chan and Sam took a short nap, while the rest of the team helped out the other watches to battle the strong winds. Michaela, our bosun of the day, did a great job to keep the boys under control. Felicity, Will and Zach worked together to film some funky clips J Special mention to Ben, who managed to bump his head in every situation!
Good night from White Watch!
