FROM: Manly To: Manly
DATE: 8 November 2023
POSITION: en route to Peel Is
REPORT: Red Watch
Today was a bright and early morning starting with our 12-4am shift. This was interesting because we were not used to waking up so early. We were able to navigate the location of nearby boats and count surrounding boats as well as other possible objects. After this we had a quick nap before waking up at 5:30am due to the excitement from the other watch groups.
To start off our morning adventure, we headed over in the dinghy to the sand dunes in Moreton Bay. We actively climbed the sand dunes to the very top where we found the most amazing views. We took a few photos and had a massive race down the hill, sending a few of us down the hill face first.
After this adventure, we had a quick swim and enjoyed jumping off the ship. Taylor, Tobin, and Jack were also able to kiss the mermaid. We then raised the anchor manually and prepared the sails for our next adventure at Tangalooma. Once we arrived, we dropped the anchor and headed over in the dinghy to the beach, where we could snorkel and have a relaxing time at the beach.
After manually pulling up the anchor we prepared for night sailing. Our watch shift started at 6-8pm rotating in our rolls for lookout and helm. We are currently heading to Peel Island. The food is amazing. Thanks Hugh, best cook ever! HOORAY! Such a fun day.
