POSITION: Myora anchorage

REPORT BY: Red Watch

Today we woke at 5am and completed our first watch, completing book work, tying knots and watching the sun rise. After our hot breakfast of bacon and eggs we had knot tying competition where not many people had it down. After we got ready and gathered our things groups of 5 took the dingy to shore where they stood in the rain, waited for the rest of us. After we were all together we set off for the sand dunes. The weather finally cleared up and the sun showered us in its rays, (burning most of us as it would turn out). We had about 2 hours on the dunes stacking, sliding and climbing. It was a new experience for many of us and everyone had an absolute blast.

After the torturous trip back on the dingy, taking in more water than we could bail out we were called into our delicious lunch of burritos. After a short intermission of lazing around and letting our stomachs settle we hoisted the sails and set off towards our next destination, Myora. We arrived at around 5.30, taking down the sails and settling in for the night. We enjoyed a delicious chicken and vegetable stir fry with rice and watched the sun fall behind the horizon. We had fruit salad and custard for dessert and continued with our watch. Answering questions, completing this log, tying knots and taking observations. All in all what started as a dark and gloomy day turned out to be a bright and sunny one, which everyone enjoyed thoroughly. Pearl, Soleil, Kasey
