Colin Forbes Cruising Easter Rally
Good Friday 18th April - Easter Rally Brunch 20th April 2014.
Starting Good Friday at 1000 hours from Red Buoy Islington Bay the Colin Forbes Easter Rally is a fun family event that includes a little bit of sailing, a little bit of racing, a lot of fun and laughter and good memories! Courses will start and finish as per the race officer instructions, Rachel Upton on Adventure. Courses and destinations will be announced on Chanel 77 each day at 1000 hours.
On Sunday 20th April a brunch is held at a suitable beach with Games for all, an Easter Egg Hunt and plenty of camaraderie!
Why not join in the fun? Enter at the Squadron Reception and if you are a motor yacht owner - don't feel left out! You too can enter and go into the competition for the best dressed fish, join the scavenger hunt, or just enjoy the sailors working hard.
"Each boat must carry a dinghy (towed or ondeck)" - you need them to get ashore for the social hour.....or longer!
The Cruising Rally’s are made up of a fleet of yachts with the prerequisite of having families join the sailors and it being about the stories on the beach, guitars playing and memories being made, just like it was in the good old days! The Race Committee will stay at the start line for 30 minutes if you prefer to sail casually over the start line. Catamarans and power boats most welcome and encouraged to join in, we are always happy to have you involved and you may even like to help with the Starts or finishes. For the Cats if there are more than six you may even have your own division! Destinations such as Woody Bay, Rakino Island; Oneroa, Rocky Bay, Man ‘o’ War Bay, Waiheke Island and not forgetting the annual pilgrimage to Smeltinghouse Bay, Kawau Island for Anniversary weekend.
