Kia Ora from the R Tucker Thompson.
Trainee Day! The pot and pan alarm was reversed on the crew this morning. The team then got stuck in, formulating a grand plan for the day.
We weighed anchor, dodged some rocks and headed around the corner to the Taniwha cave. We held hands and ventured into the dark. It was pretty scary but we prevailed like legends and got through the cave. We then did some bombs of the rocks and ate some Kina. Once back at the ship we had lunch, barked up the John Deere and set FULL SAIL. The wind then died and we managed about 0.1 knots.
Sea shantys were sung and cinnamon scrolls were consumed while we floated round in circles. Then the wind came back, and we regained a respectable speed of around 3 knots. We launched lil tuck for a sail race to round out a delightful day. We stowed the final sails as the sun was setting and parked up at Opunga cove. A full on, but fun and successful day. Happy chatter and laughs echo round the boat as the massive pile of dishes is tackled.
