Okay, everybody. Please, hold your applause till the end, we have a lot to get through here:

On flight QF108- Kisha and Jen first out of customs, followed by Amanda and Kris and Gary and Mallory

The three teams took a train to Sydney Cove (Circular Quay station), to retrieve a clue by the base of the Harbour Bridge:


On the train, Mallory said: "One of us could win the Express Pass"

The three leading teams took the 11:07 Fast Ferry to Manly (It was late, departed at about 11:15-11:20 ish.)

11:52- G/M, K/J, A/K arrive at Oceanworld Manly and go inside. The :angel stops to get something to eat, and waits.

12:38- A ferry arrives at Manly, the following teams run past :angel
-Flight Time and Big Easy (Herb and Nate)
-Margie (Being dragged by Luke)
-Jamie and Cara
-Kynt and Vyxsin
-Zev and Justin (wearing globetrotter shirts)

12:44- Mel and Mike and Ron and Christina run past.

12:55- Gary and Mallory are first team to leave Oceanworld, headed for Manly Yacht Club. :angel does not follow.

13:00- Another ferry docks at manly

13:03- Jet and Cord arrive at Oceanworld, currently in last place.

13:14- A/K and K/J exit Oceanworld together

13:25- Z/J leave Oceanworld and get in a taxi

13:40- M/L, Ja/Ca, FT/BE leave Oceanworld

13:45- M/L and Ja/Ca return to Oceanworld, they are lost. (:angel is slightly ticked that Ja/Ca were happy to run off on the others, until they realised they needed their help.)

13:54- Jet and Cord leave Oceanworld. :angel was busy in kiosk asking about teams and may have missed some teams

14:09- @ Yacht club. Teams are performing a sailing task. Teams are very scattered and :angel only catches small glimpses of several. Notably, Kisha and Jen pass Margie and Luke coming the other way, Kisha and Jen say "Good luck" and teams high five each other in a show of support.

14:23- Gary and Mallory sighted (Later learned they were coming back from Cabbage Tree Bay and phony Pit Stop)

~14:15-14:20? Gary and Mallory told to continue racing.

14:26- Amanda and Kris told to continue racing.

14:31- Kisha and Jen told to continue racing.

14:38- Zev and Justin told to continue racing.

14:59- Flight Time and Big Easy told to continue racing.

15:03- Jamie and Cara told to continue racing.

15:09- Margie and Luke told to continue racing.

15:14- Ronald and Christina told to continue racing.

15:15 (assumed)- Mel and Mike told to continue racing.

15:32- Kynt and Vyxsin (Who came in from the wrong direction) told to continue racing. (:angel suffers a bout of "OHMYGOSHITSKYNTANDVYXSIN" and follows them. :angel learns teams are taking a ferry back to Sydney. Vyxsin looking in bad shape at this point, can hardly stand up. :angel asks if she's ok and if she needs any help. Vyxsin says she'll be ok, thank you.)

Unknown time: Jet and Cord told to continue racing.


16:39- (On ferry back to Sydney) Kynt: "When we get to the outback we'll be driving, not running."

Roughly 18:15- Teams sighted waiting at town hall square.

18:30- :angel goes back to the airport to fly home.

Thanks Coutzy, BayBay, Dhall and all of the so many others who made this an incredible premiere spoiler leg!

Now just to confirm, there was no clue to Lavender Bay or Pyrmont Bridge?

Observations:
Jet/Cord probably fell behind when they missed the fast ferry by less than ten minutes, or when they assumed there wasn't one.
Gary/Mallory and Ronald/Christina probably fell behind when they mistakenly went to Pyrmont Bridge in search of "To Sail, To Stop".

I'm not sure what the conditions are for getting teams on the same flight to Tokyo:
QF 21 from Sydney to Tokyo, 2205-0615

But that should be easy as long as teams miss this flight:
CX 100 from Sydney to Hong Kong, 1540-2200
CX 524 to Tokyo, 0105-0600

Given teams make it into Sydney by 10.30am and have plenty of time (if in race mode) to make the Hong Kong flight, if Tokyo does turn out to be the next destination the evidence leans strongly towards DrRox's proposal of a roving Pit Stop, with teams held in Sydney until after 3pm.

1.02pm, Peach: Teams at School of Rock in Manly.

I feel I may have been misleading when I texted that to Peach. I meant that I had seen teams in front of "School of Rock" aka- Mel and Mike.

The team, not the place. Sorry everyone.
