FROM: Brooklyn TO: Brooklyn
DATE: 14 Nov 2017
POSITION: Coaster’s Retreat
Report by: White Watch
Today we went on an amazing trip from Brooklyn. Before our delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs and cereal, we had a knot tying competition which of course White Watch won in crowning glory. We literally learnt the ropes and can now belay, hoist the sails and sheet-in a sail. Sophia was our bosun for the day and ordered us all around with surprising ease.
A lot of us felt a bit sea-sick when we hit a bit of a swell but recovered when we found calmer waters. Once we had furled the sails, Damon our skipper took us across in the tender to a secluded beach where we had a good swim. Tonight we have dropped anchor and are resting.
Before dinner, we had two knot tying competitions with White Watch smashing another of these. We are all getting used to a life at sea and will find it tough to return to our land-lubber lives after this trip.
