Yacht club Night on Dock of­fers rich fare

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

THE Abell Point Yacht Club is invit­ing lo­cal boat­ies to a Night on the Dock, re­plete with King Is­land cheeses and fine wines.

The night of fine food, drink and club fel­low­ship will be held on the L Arm of the Abell Point Ma­rina this Fri­day, May 22, at 5.30pm.

The night out, which is a fundraiser for the club, has been or­gan­ised by Fish D’Vine and will fea­ture wines from the Fine Wine Part­ners port­fo­lio, all of which are on the restau­rant’s own wine list.

Ex­pert ad­vice and wine in­for­ma­tion will be pro­vided by recog­nised bar pro­fes­sional Mark Wy­att.

And for a spe­cial “sting in the tail” there will be a great neat rum to fin­ish.

All prod­ucts have been do­nated for the event and the com­plete pro­ceeds from the night will go to­wards mak­ing the club more fi­nan­cially ro­bust and able to host fur­ther events in a sim­i­lar vein.

The price to at­tend is $20 for club mem­bers and $25 for guests and po­ten­tial mem­bers of the club.

RSVPs are es­sen­tial as num­bers will be capped. Email abell­pointyc@gmail.com. En­try fee is payable by cash on the night.

The next on-wa­ter event for the club will be the fourth Coral Coast Race and Rally.

The Rally to Mag­netic Is­land leaves Air­lie Beach on Tues­day, June 2, and the Race on Fri­day, June 5.

APYC spokesman Luke McCaul said while sup­port for the rally had been fan­tas­tic, “there has been lit­tle in­ter­est for the race com­po­nent to date”.

He said a min­i­mum num­ber of boats was needed for the race, but there was still time to reg­is­ter and be part of the event.
