MANDURAH OFFSHORE FISHING and SAILING CLUB
NEWS LETTER JANUARY 2017
TO ALL OUR CRUISING FRIENDS
With the summer set in, many members are heading out to sail around the bay and some further.
If you would like an afternoon sail then join in the Wednesdays Twilight Cruise departing around 6pm.
In keeping with the cruising groups social activities we have arranged a BBQ at the HENRY SUTTON GROVE corner of Carter St. and Leighton Rd. Halls Head on Sunday 19th February. Sailors can go for a morning sail then anchor in the estuary. We will have one of the clubs tenders who will pick you up from your boat and take you to shore for the BBQ.
AUSTRALIA DAY BUNBURY CRUISE
This is a favorite cruise for many members who have sailed to this destination in the past and we have joined together with the Racing fleet boats planning to meet up with them in Bunbuary. This year Australia day holiday falls on Thursday, which give us adequate time to sail down the coast. The Koombanna sailing club will welcome us at their club house. Members in the past have anchored up in the bay and celebrated the day with the fireworks display on at 8.00pm. An opportunity to continue to Port Geographe Bay marina and to sail further to Quindalup is an option for many who have the time. Cruising in Company theme will apply with cruisers keeping in touch vie VHF ch72. Cruise notes and predicted weather conditions will be posted 5 days prior to this event.
