DISAPPOINTING CLASSIC BOATING NEWS On the topic of the Classic Yacht Association’s new 40 berth Heritage Basin marina,12 days have passed and all we see is a CYA email > website link to a presentation that we are told was presented at the AGM, from my recall a lot of what is in this ‘just released’ written presentation was not mentioned on the night, in what could best have been described as verbal chat. The Chair of the CYA states ‘Just to reiterate – nothing is confirmed, it is still being negotiated’. We get that, thank you – but there is still no clarification or confirmation of what the CYA general committee > sub-committee is negotiating on behalf of CYA members and their classic vessels. So could someone answer this simple question below –
WILL ACCESS TO THE NEW 40 BERTH MARINA BE OPEN TO ALL CYA REGISTERED BOATS -OR WILL IT BE YACHTS THAT MEET A PRESET DEGREE ?
As you read this, 18 classic woody launch owners will be waking up berthed alongside the dock at the Clevedon Cruising Club after a BBQ ashore at the clubhouse on Saturday night. Hopefully on departure the skippers will be better behaved than the yachts in the above photo. Check out WW tomorrow for a full trip report and photos 🙂
Good morning woodys, following on from last months impressive event that saw 15 classic launches cruise to the Riverhead Hotel – We can confirm details of the 2nd event – a cruise on Sunday 20th October up the Weti River to the Stillwater Motor Camp. The venue is situated in a stunning waterfront location on the upper reaches of the Weti River.
Depending on our cruising speed – approx. 1 1/2 > 2 hours from the Harbour Bridge. Scroll down to view photos I took when last there.
GREAT NEWS – we have access to the private deep water jetty, which makes the trip more pleasant.
And your’e best mate – Fideo is welcome, but on a lead please.
We will send out more details closer to the event, but for now – do two things:
1. Put a circle around Sunday 20th Oct in the diary and note the important times on the poster above.
2. Send a quick RSVP email to Sue Edmonds at the address below – just need your name, vessel name and approx. and if you know it, the number of people aboard.
