September was a good month. We had a very sociable First Friday, a very successful raft-up and of course it was the opening of the sailing season. So we have a bunch of great photos for you here . And as a special bonus, click on the slide show below. The crew of Nirvana's Kitchen and Hebe Haven in the first of our online cruise training series, showing how to attach a stern line (no doubt the YouTube video of this will go viral).
Janet Dell's account of the Jerasalem Bay weekend follows:
The weekend cruise of September 5/6 was a very busy time for Cruise Co-ordinator Jim Cormack. It began with a sailing rally to Jerusalem Bay, a raft-up of yachts into their 'dinner groups' (as arranged by Jim) followed by 'cocktail hour' on Mix'd Nutz (by this time Jim must have been exhausted).
After the presentation of rally prizes, everyone returned to their boats then it was on to each group's 'Progressive Dinner'. What fun we had! Delicious three course gourmet meals were consumed as we moved from one boat to the next and back again for each course. Lively conversations were held, jokes were exchanged and games were played.
Many thanks to Jim for his excellent organisation and also to Clem (she who must be obeyed) for all their efforts.
