Today we are very excited to announce that we are sponsoring the 2015 Down Under Rally, which will be held this November in Newcastle!
This unique event is expected to attract more than 26 visiting vessels from New Caledonia to the Hunter region. Participants will be based at the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club for the week, where they will have the opportunity to experience the unique culture that Newcastle has to offer, mingle the local skippers and learn more about the Aussie boating lifestyle.
On the evening of Monday 16th, Deckee will be hosting a special presentation on ‘Cruising the NSW and QLD Coast’ at NCYC. Our guest speaker is Norm Walker, who has extensive experience cruising our Eastern Coastline, and will be sharing his knowledge and photos of dozens of anchorages and stopover points with the audience.
The presentation will coincide with dinner and drinks in The Galley Restaurant ($20 per person).
The evening is also expected to attract many Vice Commodores of the Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club based on the Central Coast, who will be coming along to catch up with one another and ‘meet and greet’ the rally participants.
The rest of ‘Welcome Week’ will be packed with activities for the visiting fleet, including ‘Yoga for Yachties’, city bike tours, a cocktail party, dinghy races and a winery tour to the Hunter Valley.
We’re proud to be a part of this great initiative and look forward to seeing everybody on the night and swapping some stories!
