FROM: Townsville to Cairns

DATE: 5 July 2022

POSITION: Hinchinbrook Channel

REPORT BY: Blue Watch

The gals (B2, B4 & B6) woke up at 0001-0200 to map our coordinates from previous shifts, the boys (B1, B3 & B5) did the same 0200-0400. Awoken at the ripe hour of 0630 to the sound of the Bugle and the hint of rain. After cold breakfast we came FIRST in the figure of 8 knot at 0700. We then had luscious pancakes with bananas.

We all went on deck and hoisted the sails and powered on heroically to the end of our freezing rainy shift. We then tacked the sails twice and took them down all by ourselves! You’re welcome white and red watch. We had burritos for lunch and took a nap after playing UNO. After that we tested our speedy skills in the bowline knot comp (2nd place again, damn). Chef Hugh cooked the most delicious Chinese stir fry for dinner, shortly after we feasted our eyes on a stunning blood orange sunset falling behind the Hinchinbrook Islands.
