Inquisitive Boaties

Last night we continued our journey up past Jervis Bay and by this morning saw the delights of Wollongong. After a successful set of setting and furling drills we sailed into Batemans Bay, Port Hacking and being a Sunday afternoon we were swamped with inquisitive boaties. We are such a magnet. Because it was so hot the pool was opened and the yard swing was rigged.Woody the master chef created a fabulous Christmas dinner this evening and even Santa’s helpers and Santa himself made an appearance. Command Day elections are complete and now the new team are making their preps for their big day tomorrow.Speak thenAndrew Davis
