FROM: Manly TO: Manly
DATE: 3 May 2018
POSITION: Tangalooma Wrecks, Moreton Is
REPORT BY: White Watch
We were woken up at 4 am by one of our watch leaders and went straight onto our shift which was 4-8am. This shift was uneventful until 6am when we got to polish brass. Breakfast was a good feed. Cook excelled herself again, with magnificent pancakes. Household duties were done. Then white watch won the knot competition (AGAIN!).
We then went into the crystal clear water for a relaxing swim. We reboarded the ship and prepared the crew for sail hoist. We departed south of North Point and motor sailed out into northwest channel then had a very smooth sail down to Tangalooma with a few tacks involved. Sails were dropped in Tangalooma anchorage.
The ships company went ashore to explore the beautiful beach and ship wreck. We spent a few hours snorkelling and exploring. We reboarded the vessel and yet again won a knot competition (rolling hitch). Dinner was again delicious and was followed by the election for officers for command day tomorrow. We then were sent off to bed for a good night’s rest after today’s big adventure.
