We are happy to write that all 5 vessels that cruised from the east have safely reached Cullen Bay in Darwin, although not without some incidents and stories to tell. We’ll leave it up to the individuals to tell their own tales. R&R suffered a bit of wear and tear with both engine raw water pump seals leaking badly and both exhaust bellows coming to life’s end after 5 years. We’re in Perth and hopefully Dan from NT Marine Electrical & Engineering will have it all fixed when we get back to Darwin later this week.
We are looking foreward to the first KCCYC beach party on 4th July at the mouth of the Berkeley River. So far we think there will be at least 7 boats and over 30 people there. Anyone is welcome to come along to this BYO everything event and have some fun. Guests and staff from the Berkeley Resort have been invited, so we think that, along with the bunch we know are coming off cruising boats, there will be some interesting people there. It is shaping up to be a great day.
