We tacked about 4 times to go with the wind to get to our destination which is here at the Big Sand Hills and although the workload was big and all of us went through multiple trials and tribulations, we all learnt new things and challenged ourselves which is all part of this voyage.

South Passage Daily Report

CLIENT: Churchie Grammar School

VOYAGE NUMBER:  20231120 

FROM: Manly To: Manly

DATE: 21 November 2023

POSITION: Horseshoe Bay, Peel Is

REPORT: Red Watch

The day began early on today, with our watch covering night shifts between 12-4am. Once the bugle was beautifully blasted by Angus Underwood, the rest of the crew were up. We were instantly met by a gorgeous breakfast prepared by Cath.

By 9 o’clock, the anchor was lifted, and we were off to our destination of Peel Island. Initially, the ship was met with smooth sailing. However, we were confronted with a strong storm. Luckily for us, the watch leaders in Mark, Brian, and Dave were there to reassure the crew of safe travels. Under their guidance, us inexperienced sailors were able to delegate the deadly conditions.

After that, we were rewarded again by Cath’s beautifully made lunch. It consisted of a burger, with premium patty and gourmet vegetables. For the rest of the day, the sky cleared up and we were greeted by the sun for the first time this trip. The sun seemed to provide the crew with the unsung beauty of our meticulously formed planet by our Lord. The drawback of the sails marked the end of our trip to Peel Island.

This experience so far, has not only provided our crew with the skills to sail and navigate, but has also served as an instrument for us to form into the men that will thrive in a rapidly changing society. Although we must separate paths tomorrow with the South Passage, we will never forget of the experience and will cherish the lessons that the staff members have instilled within us. Hiro and Luca
