Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club Rendezvous 2014
The rendezvous is a four day party better expressed with photos. Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club was a concept created as a “network for cruising yachties and individuals who enjoy boating”. Their yearly rendezvous raises money for prostate cancer. Over $80,000 was raised this year! To learn more visit the the SICYC website.
The Rendezvous started on the Thursday and as we arrived a day earlier we took the opportunity to visit Gloucester Island.
The rendezvous officially started on Thursday at Montes with happy hour, meet and greet, mud crab auction and races!
Friday morning we enjoyed a champagne breakfast at Cape Gloucester Resort.
… and then a long walk to “walk off” the breakfast!
Then it was out to Shag Islet to fly the kites, enjoy a drink and a sausage sizzle, and catch up with yet more friends!
Friday arvo was back to Montes Resort for happy hour again were we ran into people we had met in Port Fairy, VIC. Katrina also arrived to join in the festivities!

Saturday morning started off slowly.
Boats were judged “best dressed” for day and night. Plenty of boats put on a good display of flags during the day and lights at night.
A band playing on the back of this impressive motor boat kept us entertained.
Dwayne, Katrina and I came prepared with champagne and nibbles.
We found Helen and Graham amongst everyone.
and buster the super dog!
Saturday afternoon the Parrot Head Party started with a group photo.
Plenty of Parrot Headed people around!
The drinks started early…..
The dancing started early…..
Then the sun went down and the party started! Dwayne hit the dance floor and did the Dwango Tango!
It was an awesome night and we eventually got dropped off at our boat about midnight.
On Sunday the final event was the Pirate Fair at Dingo Beach Hotel. A spit Roast lunch, Pirates of the Caribbean theme, band, prizes and a lot of stripes!
There were some awesome costumes, like this guy “Pirates of the Living Dead”!
We all had a great time and, before long, the weekend was over and Dwayne and I were sailing north again.
