DATE: 15 January 2020
POSITION: Big Sand Hills, Moreton Is
REPORT BY: Blue Watch
The brisk morning’s superb vivid backdrop engulfed our minds plaguing them with wonder and awe reverberating the very essence of beauty and tranquillity. Unfortunately this was ruined due to our tedious chores regarding the polishing of the brass perpetuating a sense of “adventurousness.” The piercing sound of the bugle polished lovingly by Aaron, woke up the members of South Passage at 0630 precisely.
The Rope tying competition (Participants were required to tie a sheet bend) commenced after breakfast resulting in an unfortunate loss to the Blue watch team. The vessel’s exemplary sails were lifted in order to relocate to Moreton Bay, adjusting the tension of the halyards required collaboration, concentration and immense combined effort. Unfortunately destiny decided to cast a powerful rain during the Blue watch shift making the journey astronomically challenging. Fortunately the weather would clear up lamenting a sense of self-satisfaction after accomplishing our goal through extreme weather.
It was quintessential in accordance with South Passage’s code abbreviated into the intricate acronym ROPE (respect, opportunity, participation and enjoyment) that the participants of South Passage jump off into the spectacular waters of Queensland alleviating our initial anguish derived from our difficult chores. The food provided by Hugh would complement the experience ameliorating morale. Our day was an exhilarating adventure deviating from the norm and manifesting a memory that would be cherished forever.
