CLIENT: Silver Youth Voyage
VOYAGE NUMBER: 20220926
FROM: Hervey Bay to Manly
DATE: 27 September 2022
POSITION: Inskip Point
REPORT BY: Red Watch
The day began when the sun came up, and with anticipation Red Watch awoke after their four-hour night shift to the gentle sway of the ship. Then, our first rigorous knot-tying competition began with all four watches competing to tie the ‘round turn and two half hitches’. Blue Watch came out victorious, with White just behind and Red unfortunately trailing behind as the day continued.
We sailed down to Inskip Point after some delicious breakfast, light winds guiding our three-hour journey to the Southern tip of Fraser. There we docked across from an old jetty where the wildlife ran rampant; dingoes, dolphins, and crabs were scattered across the beach. After this, the watches combined once again to test their skill in a backstay competition as well as a reef knot competition. We then went ashore to play a heartful game of soccer, read and discover the wonders of the amazing ecosystem. Special acknowledgment to Anger the Crab who had half of her limbs and a lot of hope to survive (but also a lot of anger, hence the name).
Leaving the island, we had an early dinner of bangers and mash and had a figure of eight knot competition. With pride we can announce Red Watch emerged victorious, followed by a scrumptious sticky date pudding for dessert! As of current we revel in our victory and listen to the pattering of rain against the ship, looking forward to a long day of sailing down to Moreton Bay tomorrow.
