We arrived at the marina at 4:30pm, parents made their way on board the ship to have a look around and got into our group called blue watch (Maddy, Scarlett, Julia, Max, Harrison, Saachi, Evan, Lauren). At 5:00 all students boarded the ship, we organised our bags and bed, then we all had dinner (mash potatoes and sausages). After dinner Peter and Robyn gave a safety briefing, watch groups split off and learnt all about how to operate the ships plumbing.
