Pleasant cruise to Double Bay

SKIPPERS and crews enjoyed a casual cruise to Double Bay on Saturday after the annual race was abandoned.

Skytrim, Twister and Fandango cruised in company around to Double Bay, joining Hinemoana II, Shearwater and Anthea in the bay.

After anchoring crews relaxed on their boats and explored the beach until the sun went down when everyone headed to Twister for a barbecue dinner.

With everyone on board, the cockpit was packed and the party continued late into the night under a bright starry sky.

The next morning weary heads made their way back to Twister for a barbecue breakfast, before slowly packing up, hoisting anchors and sailing back to Airlie Beach.
