CLIENT: Silver Duke of Ed
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20230919
FROM: Manly to Hervey Bay
DATE: 22 Sept 2023
POSITION: Deep Creek
REPORT: White Watch
We started bright and early at midnight, where we raised the anchor and prepared for departure to K’gari (Fraser Island). White Watch was on until 4am. We raised the Foresail, did some jibing, and enjoyed the beautiful night with our hot chocolates. We handed over to Blue Watch and went to bed until 7.30am.
We spent the morning on the main deck, and it was really rough with lots of large waves. We saw a few whales and dolphins in the morning. A few hours and a lot of choppy water later, the water calmed as we approached the shore to K’gari. We continued around the side of the island and anchored at Deep Creek where we took the dinghy ashore to bushwalk and explore. Luckily no encounters with dingoes!
We came back for a tasty hot dinner of beef and vegetables with exclusive sides of exfoliating potatoes. After dinner we took bearings and filled in the log and got ready for our last night on the South Passage voyage as we prepare for Kids in Command Day tomorrow to Hervey Bay.
