During the recent resupply the incoming team had the opportunity to go on a boating trip down the east coast with experienced coxswains guiding the small flotilla of inflatable boats.
It was a great chance for the team to see the island in all its glory from the water, and to practise safe landing and launching of the boats at Green Gorge and Sandy Bay. It was also useful for some team members to practice disentangling the propeller from the local notorious bull kelp.
For many of us it was the first time we had seen the Green Gorge field hut. Now we know what we're hiking towards in the coming weeks as our field training starts.
