CLIENT: St Phillips Christian College
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20181117
FROM: Sydney To: Sydney
DATE: 17 November 2018
POSITION: Refuge Bay, Broken Bay
REPORT BY: Blue Watch
During our first day, we met at the train station at 4.20 am, ready to arrive in Sydney by 7.30. Once we were in Sydney and found the ship at the wharf, we got a quick run-down of everything and began learning how everything functions. Being in our watch groups, all learning together was quite interesting as most of us had never sailed before, so getting this opportunity was a once in a life-time experience.
Many of us began to feel ‘sick’ and light headed, although that was disrupting how we would normally function, we pushed through. From learning the ropes of the ship, tying different knots, amazing food, staff and people you are surrounded by on this ship, it has been an experience we all won’t forget.
