The J24 Victorian association is doing some late editing to the events calendar of 2016. Given that we’ll all turn up to the opening of an envelope, it seems very wrong that we miss the opening of a new marina on Port Phillip! So on the weekend of 27/28 February, we are planning a weekend away so that the J’s can be seen at the “Grand Opening” of Wyndham Harbour.
The plan is to sail over there on the Saturday, to arrive in time for the BBQ and live music which takes place from 6-9pm. It’s $10 pp and they cater for vego’s and gf’s and even better, if we book through Wyndham Harbour then the $10 goes to the coast guard as a donation. The berths for the boats are free – now there’s a bargain for a night’s accommodation – even our Scottish skipper might be lured in for this deal! There are portable toilets there and a shower too – so no excuses for being part of ‘the great unwashed’… Drinks are BYO.
Sunday morning, we have the BBQ facilities for the exclusive use of the exclusive J24 association, so the association will put on a breakfast BBQ and we can all fuel up for the race home…or it might end up being a race there on the Saturday…we need to get closer to the weather for the weekend and work out which day looks more likely not to suit Pacemaker (which is any day not ending in ‘y’ really…)
I’m looking into what the accommodation options are for the marina, so hopefully we should still be in luck for finding some good accom at some pretty respectable prices – for those not opting for the free, floating kind. Watch this space…
If you can please let the Vic association know if you are going ASAP and complete the attached form would be excellent – if we book all the berths at once then they’ll put us all in the one spot. RSVP’s to: Kirby O’Brien email@example.com
And now it’s welcome to Wyndham!!
