South Passage Daily Report

CLIENT: SP Training Voyage

VOYAGE NUMBER:  20180529

FROM: Rosslyn Bay TO: Mackay

DATE: 31 May 2018

POSITION: Middle Percy Is

REPORT BY: White Watch

After a delicious bacon and eggs breakfast and the normal chores, we set sail from Pearl Bay. The engine was turned on soon after and we motor sailed.  Relieving Red watch at 12 noon, White watch did a 4 watch rotation of 15 minutes each until 15:00.  Unfortunately during the watch the fridge compressor stopped working. The Skipper made a few phone calls and told us that a mechanic would be in Mackay at 11 am Friday to fix it. 

So that we can arrive in Mackay by early morning, a night voyage is proposed departing Middle Percy Island at 23:30.  Several of us went ashore at M.P.Is and enjoyed looking at the hut with its incredible memorabilia.  A few of us bought honey to take home and Louise put a note on South Passage’s plaque there.
