It was a beautiful start to the morning, Ilyas was first in for the morning swim followed by the rest of the trainees.
This was followed by the usual morning duties and breakfast.
After breakfast we hoisted sails and set a course for the 3 nautical mile mark to release scraps and then headed towards Waewaetorea for an afternoon of fun.
The trainees had the opportunity to go for a snorkel to play with the local fish and collect kina- Jason, Matthew Kokopeta, Alexis, Olivia, Tamara all took this opportunity while Kate, Havanna, Ilyas, Leyla, Jack and Liam all thought their time was best spend exploring the beach and soaking up some of the sun’s rays. Once the divers had had enough it was time to head back to the ship for a spot of curried lunch which the trainees devoured.
With the clean-up complete, it was time to move anchorages out of the wind, we hoisted anchor and the sails once again and set a course for Homestead bay on Moturua island.
On arrival the anchor was dropped and the trainees had an option to complete the tucker challenge, Kokopeta was first to complete the challenge, followed by Havanna, Liam, Olivia, Ilyas, Kate, Lex, Tamara and Jason.
It was once again time to move to our night anchorage in Putakokota Bay.
We are now awaiting a delicious dinner of marinated chops and an amazing desert of lemon meringue, until then, we are playing many games such as blindfolded races and word search team races.
