CLIENT: Gold D of E GP Voyage
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20220418
FROM: Gladstone to Manly
DATE: 22 April 2022
POSITION: Double Island Point Lagoon
REPORT BY: White Watch
This morning was started by the loud blow of the bugle sounded by Yael. This early started was followed by a cold breakfast and all crew practicing their clove hitch for the competition at 7. This competition was won by the white watch.
By 8 am the anchor was raised, and we were headed towards the rough seas. After an hour we began to go through the Bar, 20 knot winds and at a 6-knot speed we were being pushed side to side by the impact of the swells. With Baza’s little screams, we raised the sails and continued our journey to Double Island Point.
After 3 hours of sailing into the wind, we arrived at Double Island Point at 3:30pm. After putting the anchor down, we had the surprise of 3 vanilla cakes to celebrate three crew members birthdays (Liam, Xabby and Kristiana ). The dingy was then released to allow crew members to wonder the beautiful headland of Double Island Point. This then followed by butter chicken and rice for dinner and cheesecake for our desert.
