POINT TALBURPIN GET-TOGETHER 16th NOVEMBER   Tony Harland says :”It’s been a long time since our last gathering, with cyclones and unsuitable Saturday tides getting in the way of our usual quarterly programme. We had intended to hold our next gathering on Saturday 3rd August, but now realise that this date clashes with QCYC’s Vintage Yacht Regatta at Shorncliffe in which we, and many of you are involved. There isn’t another suitable tide until Saturday 16th November (with a fallback on Nov 30 in the event of bad weather etc on the 16th) so we plan to hold our next event on that date, and will issue the usual reminder a few weeks prior.   Lyn and Tony Harland Home:  073206 9568 Mobile (Tony) 0419 848 684 harlandfamily@ozemail.com.au
These are friendly get- togethers designed to encourage both local and visiting sailors to get out on the water in the company of other, like-minded souls, and enjoy the facility provided by high tide at Point Talburpin. Although activities are held at or near high tide, the relatively ‘thin’ waters in these parts necessarily restrict participation to dinghies (of all sorts and sizes), centreboarders, catamarans, and other shallow draft vessels
