East Coast cruise

The East Glass Wine Coast Bay Cruise This cruise is designed to take in the sights, catch up with new and old friends, take your time and enjoy the hospitalities of club members whilst appreciating some of our iconic east coast bays. Richard and Shona Taylor’s “Easting Down” will be the Mother ship for this cruise who can double up as your freighter for extra gear or provisions that you may need assistance with. A two week cruise to a most beautiful part of Tasmania. Easy day trips starting at Connelly’s Marsh or Monk Bay for an evening briefing prior to the next day transiting the Denison Canal. Then to North Bay or Maria Island, progressing to Orford, where we are arranging a special lunch at the Orford Blue Waters Motel to be hosted by club members and proprietors Paul and Caroline Dutton. This will be an easy walk from our moored area of Shelley Beach Prosser Bay. Then onto Schouten Island, Bryans Corner, Passage Beach and Wineglass Bay for two nights if the weather systems allow. We are planning a walk to the Wineglass Bay lookout and a beach get together for lunch where we will be judging a fancy bowtie and party hat competition. Extra marks for home made. Returning southward to suitably selected safe anchorages before transiting the Denison Canal around the 18th of March for an evening wind down in Norfolk Bay, then home. Magnificent white sandy beaches, granite boulders, clear seas with dolphins regularly under the bow wave. Make sure you go in close to Isle de Phoques and see the seals at play. Amazing sounds (and smells) from a seemingly very happy seal colony based on an island in the middle of Great Oyster Bay. Walk the beaches of Reidle Bay and Shoal Bay, or head to the settlement and the ruins on Maria Island, stock up on stores you left at home while in Orford. All of this plan is subject to weather. Either way we’ll have a good time wherever we go. Cruise Contact is Richard and Shona Taylor onboard Easting Down on 0407441254.
