POSITION: Big Sandhills, Moreton Is
REPORT BY: White Watch
We were awoken from a beautiful sleep to the sound of an abrupt bugle. After completing our morning duties, we settled down for a delicious breakfast of pancakes. After MANY servings, we deemed it warm enough to go for a morning swim. The braver sailors amongst us leapt courageously from the side of the boat into the surprisingly warm and aqua marine water. We were treated to an array of back flips, forwards flips and uncomfortably-landed belly flops were enjoyed by all!
After we warmed up and got ready, we prepared the boat for a day of sailing. The sun was warm and the sky was nearly free of clouds, however the wind was blowing. Our skin was coated with a layer of salt from the repetitive waves that lapped at the side of the boat, soaking us to the bone. The boat was tilted so much that you could slide from one end to another like a child’s ride at a park.
After all of the hard work, we anchor the boat and prepare for the evening. We were about to settle down for dinner when we were informed that there was a problem with the engine, However, Skipper John fixed it for our trip home tomorrow.
We ended the evening with a “talent quest 2018”, where people showed their skills in comedy, music and anything that they deemed talented. We were treated to some beautiful singing voices. It was a great way to end the day.
