The Anchorage Marina played host to yet another Hanse/Windcraft owners rally in Port Stephens last weekend.
The itinerary was jam packed for the strong field of boats, starting with a departure from Pittwater on Friday. Many skippers choose to sail straight through to Port Stephens, however over the years an overnight stopover at the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club has become a popular option for many participants as they move up the coast.
On the Saturday most of the fleet kicked back around the beautiful surrounds of the marina resort and enjoying a drink in the Windcraft Owners 'clubhouse'. A sumptuous three course meal followed in the evening, prepared by the award winning in-house restaurant.
Owners were encouraged to participate in a social activity within Port Stephens on Sunday, presenting a great opportunity for owners to catch up with each other in a relaxed atmosphere. Informal “drinks on the dock” followed in the evening.
Check out the video below which was made following another Windcraft rally earlier in 2015, in the surrounds of Pittwater. A full report of the Port Stephens Rally will be available in the upcoming issue of Trade a Boat Magazine.
