Prize Night

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

IMG_9394 Last Friday was that night of nights, where some fun prizes were handed out, as well as the draw for the major and minor prize in the raffle for a Mariner Boating holiday to the Med! The major prize went to Graham Camier and the minor prize to Garry Holder, congratulations!

For Tim Armytage, a very satisfying part of the night was the "bucketing" of King Neptune.

For the full series of photographs of the night, have a look at the album in the centre column of this page (slideshow here). As usual, photos by Jim Cormack.

And of course thanks to Mariner Boating for a great prize!

clip_image002Just after midday on 30 December, Janet, our friend Graham Wells and I departed RPAYC for Port Jackson. The wind was about 12 knots from the south at the time of our departure and the barometer was reading 1026. By the time we arrived at Barrenjoey the wind had increased to 20 knots and so we had the wind on the nose all the way to the harbour. After anchoring at 17.20 hours at Quarantine Beach we settled for the evening and had a pleasant meal.
