DATE: 7 January 2022
POSITION: Pumicestone Passage, Bribie Is
REPORT BY: Red Watch
Woke up in Tangalooma to a solid feed from the Jamie Oliver prodigy Louise that included some cheeky bacon pieces and eggs along with the usual of cereal and juice. The morning during the Tukka we gathered with the groups to contest in the knot competition that saw us place 2nd with the challenge of a bowline knot.
We hoisted the sails with all hands-on deck ready to flee Tangalooma in aim to reach Bribie Island to anchor down. Red relaxed and napped their way through till 11:30 in time for a delicious burrito lunch that melted our mouths. We dusted off the crumbs and took over at 12 with a 2 and half hour shift ahead where we were placed in the port of Brisbane where we were challenged to tack twice in attempt to readjust our destination.
Throughout the difficulties of the task red watch were thoroughly promising in their attempt and shortly after were handed a traffic obstacle with a huge cargo ship deployed to land in the Port in our line of traffic. We avoided with no fail and headed straight for our destination. Wind blowing constantly and bombarding waves constant we pushed through these challenges and persisted. We dropped the headsails to avoid constant tacking and motor sailed our way to our destination of Bribie Island.
We anchored up and dropped the dinghy in to allow some freedom and an attempt to restock on goodies. Some girls did enjoy annoying Wazza and waste time by running around in search of normal NSW water. We ended the day with a knot competition which saw RED VICTORIOUS and a scrumptious Chicken stir-fry that put a smile on our dial. Overall, we were going like a train all day.
