GUEST SPEAKER DINNER – Friday Feb 16th, 2024

In April 2023, RBYC yachts Aquacadabra, Chakana and Saffron left Melbourne to sail up the east coast of Australia, and then across the Coral Sea to New Caledonia. After spending 2 months cruising New Caledonian waters they joined a rally to Vanuatu where they climbed a volcano, spent time in villages and met the friendliest people. In October the boats headed back to Australia.

Sue and Rob Hurrell (Aquacadabra), Robina and Brenton Smith (Chakana) and Barbara Burns and Geoff Brewster (Saffron) will kick off our 2024 Guest Speaker Dinners by regaling you with their experiences from their 6 months afloat.
Bookings are essential for catering purposes. To book, please contact Reception on 9592 3092 or email [email protected] prior to the close of business on Wednesday February 14th.   $40.00 per person is payable on the night, inclusive of a two course dinner.
