1st of September:
Everyone arrived and settled in at Adelaide after lunch. Usual procedures emergency drills. Everyone looking forward to setting sail. Saw many dolphins playing in the harbour.
Motored off, passing under the both raised bridges of Port Adelaide. Weather is good with the winds set to be even more favourable as the day goes on. Today some did the assisted climbs. Quote Hannah ‘Assisted climbs were awesome’. The view was great and Hannah saw dolphins while up there which made it even better.
