VOYAGE NUMBER: 20190415
FROM: Manly To: Manly
DATE: 15 April 2019
POSITION: Big Sandhills, Moreton Is
REPORT BY: Blue Watch
On the first day of a three-day sail from Manly to Manly, the crew arrived from 8:30-9:30. Before the safety talk the crew got their bunks set up. At 10 o’clock the sails were raised and we set sail to the Big Sandhills, Moreton bay. The first watch on duty was Red watch and they performed two tacks in an hour to get them used to the boat and gain a greater knowledge of the ropes. While Red watch was on watch Blue and White watch had lunch which was hand-made rolls.
After White watch finished their lunch they took over the watch and also performed four tacks in two hours. This allowed them to improve their tacks the more they did it. After two hours, Blue watch took over; in their watch they performed two tacks amazingly and sailed into Big Sandhills safely.
We lowered the sails at around 4 pm, before dropping the anchor and allowing the crew to have a swim. After the swim the crew had dinner which was chicken drum sticks, veges and rice. Before dinner, the crew performed a knot tying comp. The winner by a long shot was Blue watch followed by Red then White watch. The crew then settled down and played cards before heading to bed.
