FROM: Manly TO: Manly
DATE: 1 May 2018
POSITION: Currigee, South Stradbroke Is
REPORT BY: Red Watch
We started our day off by polishing the brass on deck and then Sydney woke the others up by blowing the bugle. Before we started moving, we ate cold breakfast and once we started cruising through the channels we ate hot breakfast. Today was a wonderful day to go cruising through the channel. We saw lots of different channel markers and it was different to look for the channel markers with eyes than looking at the markings on the navigation map.
Once we anchored we had our lunch in watch groups then had our knot tying competition. Blue watch had their first win of the trip. After everyone had gotten ready Robyn delivered groups to the beach, where we walked to the other side of the island, and discovered that the sand dune beach dropped straight down at least three metres and then a beautiful beach, fruitful with shells. The water was clear, but frothy from churning waves.
We then returned from the shore and did the backstay competition and white won that competition. 2 hours later the treasure hunt took place, each watch had to hunt for numerous different parts of the boat. Red watch claimed victory. The sun went down and the crew feasted upon dinner. Goodnight. Tobi, Sydney, Charley.
