REPORT BY: Red Watch

The day began with a mediocre job of polishing the brass. We started it off at around 6AM in the morning. The early morning woke us up with the brisk and sharp air of the Coral Sea with dewdrops covering most of the furnishings on the deck.

After washing our hands, we had our breakfast, which consisted of either hot porridge, spaghetti, cereal, toast and spreads/condiments, and some hot brewed tea or cold juices. After that, we left ourselves anchored near Dunk Island, acquired the dinghy, and departed to shore for a fun day of tropical activities, consisting of tanning, exploring the surroundings, dipping our feet in the water, and even finding some fresh coconuts to our luck. For the unlucky people, we found some not-so fresh coconuts riddled with disease and rot. Other than that, we found some showering rooms.

Following our adventures and misadventures on Dunk Island, we took the dinghy back to the sailing vessel, and hoisted our anchor, pumped the water from the seawater and churned it back out to cleanse the chains and such. After hoisting up the anchor, we pulled up the sails, raised the gaff, and continued our adventure.

We did our watch-assigned duties by staying posted around the ship and searching for any dangers or sights to see. We then began to sail across the Coral Sea for a while, and then having our lunches of spaghetti and salad.

After a few more hours of meticulous knot-tying and roping, we finally got to our dinner and dessert, consisting of fresh Spanish Mackerel, roasted pumpkins and potatoes, as well as peas. For dessert, we had some strawberry cheesecake.

We completed the rest of our watch activities and finally departed to our rooms and beds.
