Seal point cruise - 5\6 March 2005
The following yachts joined us on our cruise in March:
Just about - Trevor & Vicki
She's boss - Luke & Robyn
Free Wheeler - Derek & wife
Asha - John, Christine & Cathy
Stress - Roland, Karen & Patricia
Windfall - Erwee & wife
Mystic - Jim & Jean
Tulloch - Simon, Sheryl, Spencer & Matthew
We left LDYC +- 10am in a comfortable sailing breeze heading for Rose bay for lunch. We rounded Beacon Isle & met Erwee & his wife from Anchor Creek. Everybody enjoyed independant sailing to Rose bay followed by a raft up lunch that lasted +- 2 hours. Due to the Hunter 28 being the envy of the cruising fleet, Simon challenged them to make their own anchorage to test their cruising skills - well done you two! Jim & Jean also made independant anchorage - shall we say - practice makes perfect you two! Pub crawling from yacht to yacht was enjoyed by most male cruisers, while ladies made lunch, snoozed, swam or suntanned.
After this relaxing time in Rose bay we sailed to Seal Point yacht club\ Manten Marina for a comfortable night on walk on moorings. We had a group reservation at the "Flying saucer restaurant" for dinner which was successfully organised by the staff. Wolfgang & Sabine joined us for dinner - perhaps they will sail next time! Thanks to the staff the food was great, service was slow, pub quenched thirsts & we will be back!
Everyone slept warmly, comfortably & enjoyed a "Flying saucer" breakfast before sailing the short distance in a strong breeze back to LDYC. As usual, many thanks to all who joined us. We look forward to the next cruise after the AGM.
Best wishes & good wind to all,
Simon & Sheryl Fisher.
