Cooktown race track five miles long, doo dah, doo dah

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

FANCY a day at the Cooktown races, an ocean voy­age, a day of pam­per­ing and a wor­thy fundraiser all rolled into one?

Cairns woman Karyn Smith has or­gan­ised a day to re­mem­ber at a coun­try race meet­ing with the aim of rais­ing thou­sands of dol­lars for lo­cal suf­fer­ers of mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis. She says the Ro­tary Cooktown Cup Day on Novem­ber 9, with re­turn trans­fers to Cooktown on the Reef Magic, will be a day of fun, fash­ion, food and flut­ters. The Reef Magic will de­part Cairns at 7.30am and re­turn by 10pm, call­ing in at Port Dou­glas if enough peo­ple are in­ter­ested.

Guests will also en­joy a Cooktown sun­set, com­pli­men­tary sun­downer, nib- bles and en­ter­tain­ment from singer Darrin Leonard on the re­turn voy­age. The day costs $285 or $2650 for groups of 10 and book­ings close tomorrow (Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 4).
