Fleet Base Perth 1704 – TF72 October Mission Report

Mission Sitrep No. FBP-1704 October Mission Report

Date of Mission: 29th October 2017

Location of Mission: Jackadder lake Reserve, Woodlands, WA

Weather: Overcast with occasional flashes of sun. Wind average speed 7km/h gusting to 16 km/h coming from the SSW, how do I know I purchased an Anemometer which gives us a wind speed unusually it did not affect the surface water it was near flat – great for us.

Ships and Members in Attendance: HMAS Toowoomba Skipper Nige, JMSDF Osumi – Skipper Andrew, HMAS Darwin – Skipper Peter, Peter the Great Skipper Rob, and HMS Ardent – Skipper Me (Serge).

Mission Actions: Good Evening All, the Fleet base – Perth report on today’s sail day.
It was a great day sail, like I said the conditions were fantastic, we spent the morning sailing and meandering around the lake – nothing to frenzied or organised – just enjoyed each other’s company and the sailing.



Yesterday Saturday some of us (Rob, Andrew, Nige, Graeme and Me) trooped over to Peter P’s home to assist with the hull turning and ballasting trials for Peter’s USS Constellation, he even fed us a very nice BBQ. Thanks Tracey for the logistic support.

Enjoy the photos, Cheers Serge
