It's outside the Heads of Melbourne around Christmas time during the time of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. "I may have been there." They boat is coming from Sydney because it is the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Sidney is on board. He is from Potts Point and the skipper and the crew are on board. St. Mary's Cathedral, a big church, is close by the water. You would hear the waves and the wind blowing, the water and cheers from the locals. You would hear them talking. You would hear the water gushing and the boat's motor. The noise would be bad with people going yak, yak, yak, yak, yak. All the people from different nations splashing water on the bough. They didn't like it as they had kiddies there. They didn't make a good choice for the kiddies. Only about 6 hours. They went to the orphanage. There would be the smell of salt and perspiration. The wind would come up and put them in a bit of danger. They had to go home. I wouldn't have got on. I would have still got off. They had him for dinner, if they forgot he was in the house. The boat docks and the Captain and crew get off and go and have a beer. They would have more than one. They drank the beer and went home.
