CLIENT: Gold Youth Voyage

VOYAGE NUMBER:  20220703

FROM: Townsville to Cairns

DATE: 7 July 2022

POSITION: Mourilyan Harbour

REPORT BY: Red Watch

We were woken up to the bugle playing at 6:30 with a beautiful sunrise over Dunk Island. We then went ashore and explored around the island and the abandoned resort affected by cyclone Yasi. The boys jumped off the wharf to cool off before raising the sails at 10:30 ready to sail to Mourilyan Harbour. It was day 2 of our qualifying journey, so the watch leaders had stepped back and had set high standards and expectations of us to raise and lower sails and put in a few tacks. To accomplish these goals, we had to work all together as a watch and a collective and use our initiative.

Once arrived at Mourilyan Harbour, we threw out all our rubbish from the past 5 days and refilled our tanks with water. While waiting for the water to fill up, we explored around the sugar port for around 45 minutes. We then had delicious butter chicken cooked by Hugh followed by desert watching the sunset over Mourilyan Harbour. We finished the night with a concert under the stars and fairy lights, we danced, sung sea shanties and listened to Alex play the ukulele while the boys sung along. We had an amazing day with beautiful sunny weather and observing new areas, can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
