CLIENT: Saint Stephens College

VOYAGE NUMBER: 20170403

FROM: Manly TO: Manly

DATE: 5 April 2017

POSITION: Tangalooma, Moreton Island

Report by: Red Watch

The day began at 4am; the red watch awoke to participate in cleaning. We had to clean the brass of the horn and the helm, with a rag and cleaner. Then we sounded the horn initialising the start of the first cold breakfast at 6:30. Before we were able to eat the second hot breakfast, we competed in a backstay competition in which the red were winners as they are the best and completed it the fasted. We then took off on Moreton Bay where the water was a lot calmer then the previous sails so it was chill.

At Moreton Island there was a huge sand dune that we all climbed and then jumped down. We all dipped into the ocean and a few people jumped off the boat. Then took sail towards Tangalooma, at this point it was getting rather late, so we took part in a night sail. It took a while to sail to Tangalooma, blue watch was sailing through dinner. Everyone ate some pretty mad steak and tofu. We arrived at Tangalooma where we anchored down for the final time. The last watch of the red team ended at 12pm deeming it a 20hr day. We all ended the day sore and burnt, tired but refreshed after a lovely sail.
