Hi all NSW island sailors.

Hobie dealer Life Aquatics' Simon Reffold thinks its about time the NSW Island Owners got some social events going like many have in other states (Notably Queensland's SEQIC) and I agree.
He has proposed (on the NSW Hobie Island club Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/nswic/ ) having a sail and BBQ on Sunday 27th January (Australia Day long weekend) at Bayview (Pittwater).
Sailing at 09:00 and BBQ at 13:00. All Island sailors welcome.

Quote from Simon Reffold referring to news of successful SEQIC event.

"Righto NSW Islanders - this seems a bit bonkers, there are more of us than them! Australia Day Weekend Sunday, Bayview, 0900. Back for a BBQ by 1300, The Life Aquatic treat - what say you all????"

Give him some encouragement. Let him know you are interested.

Great.

Please let Simon Reffold (probably the guy you bought the boat from at Life Aquatic) know you are coming so he can cater.
Join the Facebook group or just ring him.

Details have changed. No longer a BBQ but a picnic.

At least six boats going now including you.

See you there.

Simon's invitation on FB reads

"Lets get the NSW Hobie Islands all together!
Plan is to meet at Bayview 0800 - plenty of parking that time of day and easy to get the beasts in the water there.
Then let's head up to Palm Beach or The Basin (depending on the weather) for a Picnic then back home.
The Life Aquatic will supply beverages and some treats!
Let's see how many Islands we can get out there together."

Turned out to be a great day out with 9 boats and lots of crew showing up.

Only light winds but enough.

Thanks Simon for organizing it.

Hope to see more social events scheduled soon.
