Cruise in company to Cid
THE Abell Point Yacht Club’s (APYC) first cruise in company will take place next weekend on March 14-15.
The cruise to Cid Harbour on the west coast of Whitsunday Island and a sunset barbeque on Sawmill Beach will be the club’s first social event for 2015 outside of the Abell Point Marina.
Participants are advised to arrive in the bay between 3 and 4pm on the Saturday afternoon, in time for the barbeque which will start at 4pm.
Ice boxes, beach cricket and night lights will all be provided on the beach as well as a break- fast of bacon and egg wraps and juice at 7.30am on Sunday, March 15. Participants are simply asked to bring their own boats, booze, barbeque food and banter.
For those who don’t have enough crew or even a boat to ride out on, the APYC committee are officering to put the word out to members and match people to ships. The cost to attend the event is $20 per boat for APYC members and $30 per boat for non-members.
RSVPs with details of the vessel and skipper’s name and type of boat (power or sail), are required by next Thursday, March 12 and can be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
