Melbourne Cup Day weekend Cruise Gippsland Lakes

15 July 2012

This weekend is always a good one for getting away and not having to come home the very next day.

Arrive at Painesville on Friday evening or first thing Saturday morning to be ready to set sail as soon as possible after a 10.00 am briefing by the Slip Road ramp. Our proposed weekend destinations will be decided prior and conveyed at the briefing once we know what the weather is likely to be doing over the following few days.

It’s traditional to gather for happy hours so bring chairs, drinks and nibbles.

For the newer members who haven’t done much cruising, there are often jetties to tie up to or a nice beach to back up to. There are always fellow members ready to help if needed. You will need to carry a stern anchor with chain, stake and long ropes to aid safe mooring. While most of the cruising destinations have toilets available on shore, a porta potti should be carried.

It is important to know who is coming so we can then try to contact you if you are delayed and let you know our evening destination, so please contact Lloyd (cruise coordiator) to indicate your participation in the cruise and for information about this event via email
