CRUISE CONTACT: TBA
During the extended Christmas holiday period, many of us become engaged with traditional family commitments. This cruise has been developed to enable those with several days available, down to those with only one or two days to spare, to celebrate the festive season with other CYCT members who are on the water.
For the past several seasons, many members have congregated within Barnes Bay area for a New Year’s Eve gathering ashore. No reservations, no invitations, just roll up and hunt the fleet. Everyone is welcome.
Join the fleet somewhere in Barnes Bay for NYE celebrations.
Port Esperance enjoys many safe anchorages with the added bonus of a fun dinghy ride up the Esperance River. The Cruise Contact will advise the activities for the weekend. It will likely include a BBQ ashore near the boat ramp on the Rabbit Island side. Due to the unfortunate devastating fire of the PESC house, we won’t be able to enjoy their usual Friday night hospitality. However, there will be plenty of opportunity for a social gathering on the beach for drinks and nibbles.
