FROM: Manly TO: Manly
DATE: 30 April 2018
POSITION: Blakesleys, North Stradbroke Is
REPORT BY: White Watch
As expected white watch won the morning knotting competition. We then adventured ashore to the big sand hills where we climbed up for a breath taking view and a fun run down. We then reboarded South Passage and departed from Moreton Island and arrived in Blakesley’s anchorage inside North Stradbroke. It was one hell of a ride.
It was a windward passage in the course of which we performed many tacks into a south easterly, peaking at 35 knots. Being sure to not be thrown overboard, as we desperately clung to the sides of the boat, sailing through the heavy winds and waves that crashed up against the sides. Giving us a blow of salty but refreshing ocean water. We wrapped up the day with a second knot tying competition which unsurprisingly white watch won with ease.
