South Passage Daily Report

CLIENT: Redlands College

VOYAGE NUMBER:  20180218

FROM: Manly TO: Manly

DATE: 19 February 2018

POSITION: Big Sandhills, Moreton Is

REPORT BY: White Watch

We started the day with a cold breakfast then we did a knot tying comp, we were tested on the reef knot and were winners at 50 seconds. Then we had a hot breakfast of eggs and bake beans then after we went to the beach and went snorkelling at the wrecks and saw lots of colourful fish. While on shore we had fun running down the sand dunes and swimming while we waited to go snorkelling.

After swimming we had to pull up the anchor and hoist up the sails. We then turned toward the mainland for 4 hours then we turned around and headed back. We learned to navigate the ship as well as getting a compass bearing and changing the course. We stopped at Moreton banks to end our day of sailing, lowered the sails and dropped the anchor.

Before dinner we had other knot tying comp with the figure of eight knot, white watch won again by completing it as a whole team in under 30 seconds. Tomorrow we will take over the boat and sail back home with our elected crew. (And of course win the knot comp tomorrow too!!! )
