South Passage Daily Report

CLIENT: Northern Beaches Scouts

VOYAGE NUMBER:  20180103

FROM: Sydney TO: Sydney

DATE: 4 January 2018

POSITION: Stockton Reach, Newcastle Harbour

REPORT BY: White Watch

Today was our second day on the South Passage and it was a lot calmer than the last. We left Broken Bay at 6:30am after having some cereal and toast for breakfast, although it rained at first, after we got out further, it calmed down and heated up. After hoisting the sails, we soon realised that there was not any wind and had to continue using the motor. This meant we went slightly slower and it took ages to get to our next mooring area, Newcastle.

There we lowered the sails and went ashore and had a swim at the beach. For dinner we had sausages and mash. Before we could have desert we had to do a knot tying competition. It did not go very well for our watch, we came last. Even though we didn’t do very well in the knot competitions we still got dessert which was ice cream sandwiches. Then we all turned in for the night, well not for us, we had to do the night shift till 11:00pm. All in all though, it was a pretty good day.
