Mariners' Club Cruise 1, Season 2013-14

Saturday, 12th October
The day dawned clear and sunny with a stiff breeze and, after consultation with Mariners'Club members, three boats departed from Hastings at 11:00 - Manookatoo, Patience and Morning Magic. Cruising down Westernport Bay, Patience and Morning Magic enjoyed the breeze and unfurled their sails while Manookatoo enjoyed the tide in the journey south. Rounding Tortoise Head there was a stiff breeze blowing, which continued throughout the cruise.
We took a small channel on the south side of French Island and anchored not far off the shore. Geoff ferried Col and Peter to Manookatoo, where all enjoyed lunch on the flybridge, out of the wind but warmed by the sun. After a lovely convivial meal, washed down by a couple of drinks, we departed to our various destinations, buoyed by the pleasant conditions and looking forward to a lovely summer of boating and socialising!
