South Passage Daily Report

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.
