Crew working hard to ensure that Soren won't leak anymore and can sail to Hobart, Tasmania in the end of January 2018!!!

Soren and her crew got to do some open ocean sailing on their way to a ship yard in Brisbane where she'll be refitted and made beautiful again! She already looks magnificent when in water, but damn, look at her now!!?

Sewing Sails at Sea. Did you know we make all our own sails?

We had a successful training trip this past Tuesday. We woke up at 4am after a crew sleepover on Swan and left by 5am from Cockatoo Island to make it outside the heads by sunrise. By the time we made it outside the heads and were enjoying the natural roller coaster caused by the big waves of the open ocean, the morning grumpiness had turned into big smiles and laughter. Unfortunately, however, this excitement didn't last for long as the seasickness hit in and turned us into sea slugs.

Our initial plans of doing advanced sail training outside the heads had to be changed so we turned our bow back towards the harbour into Rose Bay. There we dropped the anchor, learned about sail setting in theory, did a bunch of drills, "threw" our ship experts Fred and Keighley overboard just to save them, and had lunch.

Later as we were ready to start heading back, our day almost extended to an overnighter as the anchor kept getting stuck. We spent almost two hours hammering it back up, eventually succeeding just in time to sail back with full sails during the best time of the day. Straight into the sunset.

Overall, we spent 17h on our little journey out of which most was spent on training, sail handling or recovering from sea sickness. Great job team!!!

Swan got to go past the heads into the open ocean today. The swells were over 2 meters high giving us quite a rollercoaster ride making most of us feel sea sick, but that's ok, every minute of the ride was so worth it! Can't wait to go back out there again for our training day on Tuesday! 🌅⛵⚓🐳🐬

Just because we're ashore doesn't mean the work is done! Kimba is working on replacing a starboard breezeway deck plank.
