VOYAGE NUMBER: 20221021
FROM: Manly to Manly
DATE: 21 October 2022
POSITION: Horseshoe Bay, Peel Is
REPORT BY: White Watch
Today was the first day of our South Passage voyage. It was a rainy and windy day which made everyone exhausted. We started off with a safety briefing. We then motored to Green Island and ate some lunch (bread rolls). We learnt how to flake a rope and untie and tie the gasket. We then raised the sails and learnt which ropes were what and how to tie them off.
After a couple of hours, we arrived at Horseshoe Bay and had a swim in the ocean. Everyone had then hung up their clothes on the lines on above the table in our cabin which provided free salt for everyone’s rice. We then had the knotting competition with the knot being a Round Turn and 2 Half Hitches. After that we had dinner (chicken and rice). The first watch had begun at 7:00pm.
