CLIENT: Moreton Navy Cadet Flotilla
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20230303
FROM: Manly to Manly
DATE: 4 March 2023
POSITION: Tangalooma, Moreton Is
REPORT: Red Watch
This morning we undertook our first anchor watch starting at midnight. We all thought it was pretty fun and challenging. We had to count how many boats were near us at anchor and had to figure out the bearings of all the red flashing lights. We also worked on our adventure manuals.
The morning started with a knotting competition before hot breakfast. We learnt about rope handling, weighed the anchor, and hoisted the sails to get underway! We were on watch straight after sail raising and under 2 challenging tacks. We sailed all the way to Moreton Island. We dropped anchor and went swimming at Tangalooma wrecks and enjoyed bangers and mash for dinner.
