CLIENT: Lorien Novalis Steiner School
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20181028
FROM: Port Stephens To: Sydney
DATE: 29 October 2018
POSITION: Stockton Reach, Hunter River
REPORT BY: White Watch
This morning White Watch arose hours before the first rays of sun-light hit the Scottish-like hills of Broughton Island and the South Passage ship that was anchored in its harbour. We were assigned to polish the ship’s brass trimmings and the bugle, whereupon Lucas used this instrument to awaken the rest of the crew. We then had our cold breakfast provided by our honourable cook Hugh. This was followed by a delicious hot breakfast. We were then shuttled to Broughton Island by our shipmaster, Robyn, where students were free to explore.
Once everyone returned we set sail for Newcastle, Nobby’s Head, the entrance to the Hunter River. While teams were attending to sailing chores, many dolphins and whales were spotted, who put on quite a show. South Passage arrived through Nobby’s Head to Hunter River at 6pm, our safe-haven for the night.
