With the sun shining, the trainees were straight in the water for their morning swim, into their duties and sitting down for a delicious breakfast before 9:30 am.
Once the dishes were completed Liam and Airim completed their Tucker challenge, well done guys!
The trainees all also enjoyed tender (dinghy) classes, making pizzas and rowing on lil Tuck.
With time to spare, we boosted over to Turtle Island so the trainees could stretch their legs and build some sand castles. Others went up to the lookout and had a 360° view of the whole area.
On arrival back to the ship, we hoisted anchor and set a course for the Black Rocks on the northern side of Moturoa Island. Here we launched the tender and the trainees went exploring, they were even able to go through a mini version of the Hole in the Rock.
Back on the ship it was time for a spot of pizza for lunch, which was delicious.
After lunch some of the trainees went for a snorkel and saw plenty of fish before heading back and hoisting the anchor and setting a new course for Rangihoua Bay (Marden Cross). Along the way they set the main, fore and head sails for a great sail. On arrival the tender was launched once again and everyone went on an excursion ashore where the trainees learned plenty on the history of the area.
Back on the ship, we enjoyed a roast dinner, then the trainees had an exciting game of spotlight before sitting down and having a discussion on how the day will go tomorrow. We all look forward to seeing you at the end of Opua Wharf at 1pm sharp tomorrow afternoon!

Goodnight!
