CLIENT: Silver Duke of Ed
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20230919
FROM: Manly to Hervey Bay
DATE: 21 Sept 2023
POSITION: Bulwer, Moreton Is
REPORT: Blue Watch
The day started off with a lovely cold breaky prepared by Cath which we ate up on deck while admiring the beautiful sea of blue. This was followed by a competitive knot tying race between the watches in attempts to complete a bowline knot. After this, the entire team worked cooperatively to lift the 100 metres of chain connected to the anchor, while singing away a sea shanty.
The dingy was lowered into the water to carry us to the Tangalooma shore for some exploration up the sand dunes and some fun in the crystal-clear water. The sails were hoisted, with the wind in our hair and we were off for the day, continuing our course North from Tangalooma to Bulwer where the anchor was dropped again for the night.
Watches are getting ready for the 12am sail from Bulwer to Kingfisher on Fraser Island and resting up for the big day. Some highlights of the day were witnessing the spectacular view from the top of the sand dunes and the sighting of more playful whales.
