Fleet Base Perth - Sail Day

Good Day All,

The Mission Report for FB – Perth 4th February 4, 2018
The venue Jackadder Lake – the day started extremely overcast but got better and better – water conditions clear and the lake has risen even higher since my last report - a great day for a sail.

Skippers with their ships were Andrew K with HNLMS Tromp, Peter P with HMAS Darwin, Nige with HMAS Toowoomba, Bob G and USS Missouri, Rob R and Peter the Great and myself (Serge) with HMS Brilliant and tug Ulises also in attendance was Graeme W who skippered Tug Ulises.

Most of the morning was spent sailing and talking we also had a lot of interaction with the general public, at one point I was answering a lot of questions from a lovely 3 year old with his mum in regards the tug and he also asked who was driving the big boat (Brilliant). We also many enquiries in regard the next appearance of the carrier (Constellation) as one lady said to me she wanted to bring her grandchildren down to the lake to show them. Peter take note

We also tried to undertake OOW maneuvers, but most of the models had some sort of trouble of one kind or another – we were all dropping out of the line and then rejoining the line, Peter the Great and Missouri acted as leaders, all the escorts stayed in the rear much safer. All I can say we need a lot of practice. Enjoy the photos
