10th July is the date set for the Kimberley Coast Cruising Yacht Club’s 2013 Annual Beach Party.
There was an impromptu get together of 6 KCCYC “Kimberley Members” in Darwin last week, and following a few beers at Buzz Cafe and a few wines with a great meal at Yots Greek Restaurant in Cullen Bay Marina, we all decided to meet in the Berkeley River about 8th or 9th July for the clubs second ever Annual Beach Party.
Given that part of the race fleet from the Fremantle Sailing Club’s Fremantle to Bali race will be cruising back to Perth from Darwin via the Kimberley Coast, and by amazing coincidence will also be in the Berkeley River at the same time, it was considered a good idea to hold the party on Wednesday 10th July, and invite all crews from all boats in the Berkeley on the day.
I contacted Jodie at the Berkeley River Resort, and provided they are not busy with paying guests that day, they are happy to let us use the resort’s bar for the party and BarBQ. If they are busy on the day, we will simply have to find another spot to hold the Beach Party. This of course, is in keeping with KCCYC philosophy of not trying to organise too much. I also told Jodie that any guests and staff at the resort on the day are welcome to join us at the beach party.
Anyway, the date has been set, (but can still be changed by popular demand) and I feel extremely confident that everything will fall into place, and everyone will have a fantastic day.
I will keep you posted on any news related to the Beach Party through the club’s website News and Events page http://kccyc.org.au/news-events/, the online forum and perhaps an occasional email newsletter.
