The view from the camp: Simpson’s Point to Quarantine Bay

The camp support staff had the best view of the Simpson’s Point camp, motoring in and out over the ridge: it was spectacular. In the morning after a 7.30 breakfast the now established routine of washing up and packing up the vehicles was easily accomplished with the assistance of everybody in camp. The analogy of ants moving a grasshopper was mentioned. Ros headed out to replenish stores, chef and cooking assistants went off to preprepare meals for the day, the support group went looking for fuel and gas, whilst the setup group found their way to the new camp with a truckload of luggage, camp equipment, mobile toilets and water supplies. The tea, coffee and office marquee was set up first,  followed by the kitchen marquee. After the arrival of the sailing and rowing contingent we collectively erected the main marquee.  Sitting in camp at Quarantine Bay in the shade under the cyprus trees after the afternoon’s work was done we watched the fleet come in with the sun on their sails: it was brilliant.
