DATE: 21 Nov 2017
POSITION: Refuge Bay
Report by: White Watch
Our first watch began in the first few hours of the morning, 04:00 to 08:00. There were no winds and the water was smooth, anchor had not moved and anchor light was still on. At 06:30, we had breakfast and Ty failed miserably when she tried to blow the bugle. After breakfast we had our very first knotting competition, all watches tried to do the round turn two half hitches.
We then set sail and began our journey for the day, everything was rather smooth in comparison to yesterday. After lunch we had a second competition. We setup and undid the backstays. White Watch then had their second watch from12:00 to 15:00.
At 15:00 we arrived at Refuge Bay, we put down the anchor and most of us jumped into the water. Ty, Miller and Luca all competed at kissing the mermaid at the front of the boat. A few people went to shore on the boat and climbed the hill. Then we had our final knotting competition for the day where we did the Reef knot. White Watch managed to get 200 seconds, although not winning, we beat the record of longest time! We all had a lovely dinner and rested. Our last watch was 20:00 to 24:00.
