CLIENT: Ormiston College
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20230915
FROM: Manly to Manly
DATE: 16 Sept 2023
REPORT: Red Watch
We started the morning bright and early with a 0100-0400 watch where we took bearings with a compass before completing our adventure manual and with hot chocolate refreshments. After completing our watch, we went back to bed for a brief 2 hours before being woken a half hour early by a fellow passenger who got the wrong instructions. A little later we got breakfast where we had choices of cold breakfast (cereal) or a hot breakfast (porridge, beans, toast, eggs etc) and apple juice.
After we ate and got dressed every group participated in a rope competition which is where we did double hitches and reef knots. Then we completed our next watch where we put the foresail up. We had a break on top of the ropes with the mermaid. Then we played scrabble and saw whales. We sailed to Tangalooma.
Once we anchored down and went on the dinghy to Moreton Island and swam, tanned and climbed sand dunes/hills on Tangalooma. After two hours in the sun, we came back to the ship on the dingy and jumped off the boat. A couple of people played joke and when someone jumped in yelled “SHARK!”
Later we had dinner: Bangers and Mash, and dessert: a Cheesecake. We ended our day with a watch and then relaxed down for the night.
