South Passage Daily Report

CLIENT: General Public Voyage

VOYAGE NUMBER:  20180110

FROM: Sydney TO: Brisbane

DATE: 17 January 2018

POSITION: Tangalooma

REPORT BY: White Watch

This morning we were woken by the bugle at 6.30am and ate breakfast. We began our day motoring from Broadwater, through the inside passage past Jacobs Well and into the south end of Morton Bay. While on duty, we all noticed that the helm was far easier to control, in comparison to the rough seas we had encountered on previous days.

After setting sail and competing in a brief knotting competition, we headed to Tangalooma. Throughout the day, all watches participated in a timed “treasure hunt” to locate different parts of the ship, which the White Watch completed in the lowest time. Following burritos for lunch, we resumed our watches and arrived at our destination at around 4pm.

Before dinner we took the tender over to the beach, where we spent the afternoon soaking up the sun and swimming. For dinner we were treated to pork chops, mash potatoes and vegetables. In the evening we all nominated leaders for the final day, Command Day, which resulted in Tom and Amy from White Watch being voted as Skipper and Sailing Master respectively. Dan was elected as White Watch leader. We spent the last few hours of the day chatting and playing games.
