NQ Combined Clubs Sail in Company 26th September 2015

As part of the 2015 calendar of activities, it was proposed that we have a sail in company to Fitzroy Is.The idea would be that boats from Cairns based clubd would leave Cairns at 1100 for a sail in company

We could then meet up with boats from Yorkeys Knob Boat Club and Port Douglas at channel marker number 6 & proceed as a fleet to Fitzroy. ( All boaties welcome – sail and steamers )

Depending on the numbers we could advise Fitzroy & they could do a BBQ for us. There is a bar on the island,and they are family friendly: ( they also have a TV & the Broncos are playing Sat night)

If you are interested in join this fund social event please contact Bill Munro – CYC Yacht Fleet Captain
