VOYAGE NUMBER: 20210426
FROM: Manly to Manly
DATE: 26 April 2021
POSITION: Big Sandhills, Moreton Is
REPORT BY: Blue Watch
The first day of our voyage was unpredictable but pleasantly surprised with fun activities. We arrived at the dock to unpack and meet our watch leaders, they briefed us with what the plan of attack for the day was. We hoisted the sails to head towards to Moreton Island to arrive at the sand dunes.
Throughout the day we split it up into our watch groups to where we were assigned at different points of the ship and rotated every ten minutes. We anchored at Moreton Island at around 4:00, we jumped off the starboard rails and went swimming for about half an hour. Once everyone was finished we dried up, sat down, and ate a lovely boat cooked meal prepared by Cath the cook.
We then competed in a rope knotting competition… we lost for future reference we may need a little more practice. In two groups the lot of us got on the tender and got dropped off to the island. Once all of us arrived we went for a walk north along the island until we reached a massive sand dune. It was a mission climbing up the dune in the moon light but we managed to do so. It was definitely worth the amazing view at the top. Jenna and Samara
