Bucket list trip

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

IT WAS per­haps a co­in­ci­dence that the Yamaha Va­ri­ety Jet Trek 2017 Mis­sion: Whit­sun­days event was named be­fore Cy­clone Deb­bie hit the coast. The event, or­gan­ised by Va­ri­ety Chil­dren’s Char­ity of Queens­land, is all about em­pow­er­ing chil­dren who are sick, dis­ad­van­taged or have spe­cial needs. Rid­ers have em­barked on a ‘bucket list’ trip, ar­riv­ing at Mis­sion Beach last week­end and cov­er­ing 100km on the wa­ter each day to ar­rive in the Whit­sun­days on Fri­day at Hy­de­away Bay for lunch. They will con­tinue on to Abell Point Ma­rina, with all 90 jet skis to ar­rive at 3pm on Satur­day. Sail­abil­ity Whit­sun­day mem­bers will also have a joy ride op­por­tu­nity at the ma­rina from 7.30am on Satur­day.
