REPORT BY: White Watch

White Watch where awoken to perform their early morning duties. To aid their hard work they were met with a stunning sunrise. Thank you John and Dane for organising! After polishing the brass for what seemed like an eternity, we were served our one of two magnificent breakfasts. After we were thoroughly satisfied with our meal, served by the fabulous Hugh, we were then tasked with morning clean up.

Once the vessel was in immaculate condition, we had our second breakfast for the day and then went ashore to prepare for our snorkelling adventure in Tangalooma, amongst the ship wrecks. During the snorkel we were met with thousands of fish or every colour of the rainbow. Though their beauty can be deceiving, they may bite.

Once we were back aboard the vessel, White Watch were in charge. After leaving Tangalooma Bay we raised the sails and began our journey once again. Performing our tasks in the beating sun was exhausting, but exhilarating!

To finish the day of sailing, all watch groups met for our knot tying competition. You could cut the tension with a knife! With Red Watch winning the competition, Blue Watch coming second and White Watch coming third (AKA last) we all retire for the afternoon with a delicious meal while watching the sunset.
