Akuna Bay Cruising Club

Australia Day at Hungry Beach

Friday 01 February, 2008

Another great day of family fun and Aussie activities, as the club held its second Australia Day celebrations on Hungry Beach. A great roll-up of almost 20 brightly decorated Club boats anchored off the beach in perfect conditions, then ferried their various picnic and play things to the beach for a day of fellowship and fun.

A variety of games and activities had been organized, but the highlight was the beach cricket, with almost everyone involved, it was particularly great to see some of our younger families getting involved. Photos will be on the website shortly which confirm another wonderful day.

The only downside was the wind and current conditions off the beach caused some anchored boats to swing every which way on their anchors, one of our boats even dragged anchor some 100 metres before being retrieved. Others had to move to avoid bumping other boats, though fortunately no damage done and all movements were well handled.
