Even those not so familiar with boats will have heard about the Sydney-Hobart yacht race. Well, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) run that race each year and they have also generously hosting our stay here at their marina in Rushcutters Bay, Sydney.
In fact they have given us prime position at the end of “A Row” surrounded by some of the biggest names in Australian yachting royalty. Next to us is Brindabella, a veteran of many races, and down the pier a few paces is Loki, Wild Oats, Wild thing, Vanguard Future Shock, Victoire … the list goes on. The photos hopefully give some perspective.
As we work our way through the final tasks to be completed aboard before departure to Vanuatu, (Thursday hopefully) we feel so fortunate to be here and are really quite overwhelmed by the welcome and assistance provided by so many here at the club.
Thank you CYCA !!
