Commodore's Message

Dear Members,
We have finally had a Summer and some great boating weather!
The ABCC Beach Ball held on 22 February on Hallet's Beach was an outstanding success
Calm waters, a full moon, no wind or rain and 60 really nice people gathered on Hallet's Beach in an idyllic setting!
What more could we ask for?
That was the scene at the Akuna Bay Cruising Club's Annual Beach Ball.
We had an excellent turn out of members and guests, including a strong contingent of our members from the Central Coast who made life easier with their assistance in setting up the tents, tables and chairs.
With the reintroduction of catering, the event sold out in 48 hours!
After many years of self catering we decided to cater this year and thanks to the efforts of committee member Dennis Stokes (and his able assistant Rob Luck) a feast of seafood, cold meats and salads were prepared and presented in style.
Thank you Dennis- I think you have a job for life mate!
Jenny Turner and Rob Luck took some beautiful photos on the night and many are posted on the ABCC website thanks to the technical skills of Keith Turner. I'd highly recommend that you take a look (click on photos after 2008 and click on 2014 Beach Ball).
Thank you to all our hard working Committee for their tireless efforts to make 2014 a Beach Ball to remember and thanks to all who attended and joined in the revelry.
Finally thanks to the Weather Gods- a week either side would have produced a very different outcome!!!
Finally, a personal apology to those members who were on the waiting list. We really can only accommodate 60 but next year we will initially open to "members only" and fill any spare spots thereafter.
