CLIENT: St Phillips Christian College
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20181110
FROM: Sydney To: Sydney
DATE: 10 November 2018
POSITION: Rose Bay
REPORT BY: Blue Watch
For our first day of sailing, we travelled to Sydney, caught some trains and finally we boarded the South Passage. We were introduced to our watch leaders and were split into three different groups (Red, White, and Blue watch) after that we began getting involved in tying knots, raising sails, and learning about the different features of the ship and most importantly, co-operating as a team.
As we exited the harbour our leaders educated us about the safety requirements and how to complete different tasks on the ship, we then ventured from the harbour and during that time many student crew members started feeling sick. By the time we made it back to Rose Bay, everyone had a smile on their face.
Once we anchored, it was time to relax and end the day with a swim and a knot tying competition. The water was refreshing and the competition was an embarrassment to the Blue Watch, but then dinner was served with chicken and rice, mixed with veggies. Then it was time for a long night of anchor watches and sleep for our next long day ahead tomorrow.
