Cruise in company a complete success
PERFECT weather, a sandy beach, and good company, were features of the Abell Point Yacht Club’s (APYC) first cruising event for 2014.
A total of 10 boats and 22 pe- ople sailed away to Hook Island’s Macona Inlet especially for the weekend event.
APYC Cruise Captain, Barry Lake, said the cruise was a complete success, bringing to- gether a diverse group of sailing folk, all keen to get out on the water. “Combining this with a balmy evening barbecue on the beach made for a great weekend,” he said. Mr Lake thanked everyone who took part in the event and particularly Bob Borer, for his assistance in “spreading the word”.
APYC will be holding a series of cruising events over the coming months, with the next one being an Easter cruise to Thomas Island.
Cruising yachts are also encouraged to join in the club’s fortnightly Friday afternoon rum races.
The next race will be held tomorrow, Friday March 21 and a special course and prize has been arranged.
Anyone interested in participating should head to Sorrento’s Bar at about 3pm. Participants meet after the race at Sorrento’s for live music, presentations, raffles and more. For more information phone APYC rear commodore Tim Osborne on 0437 252 702 or email email@example.com.
