VOYAGE NUMBER:  20180416

FROM: Manly TO: Manly

DATE: 16 April 2018

POSITION: Tangalooma Wrecks

REPORT BY: Blue Watch

Day 1 of our South Passage adventure began on a warm, sunny day. We had a rough start with the failure of our bus engine, but after a delayed departure we travelled to William Gunn Jetty. We hit the high seas and began our journey under full sail. After organising our sleeping arrangements we learnt simple sailing skills in our watch groups. Tacking, flaking, tying knots, hoisting and lowering the sails were some of these new activities that we were being exposed to. We anchored on the shores of Moreton Island, next to a rusty shipwreck where we would stay for the night before our Day 2 journey.
