Dent to Dunk


Thu 22 May 2008
Tagging along on the Dent to Dunk race witih Jo and ChannelWhitsunday.com promo girls, Kay and Kristin. After a motor start, we gathered up the provisions and sailed up to Cape Gloucester Eco Resort. There, the 46 cruising boats descended on the resort for the Pirates and Blues nights. The twisted theme, was from the remnants of last years Blues and Pirates being the 2008 theme. The past players got to show their colours that way.

ChannelWhitsunday.com was there in force. We have the pirate captain and his parrot, while the girls served well as pirate wenches. In was a great night.

On the second day, we got up late and chased the fleet north. The wind freshened from the SW, which made for fantastic flat water sailing. While the fleet decided to go behind Cape Upstart, where they would have flat water, but still the wind, we ducked into Coconut Bay on the Eastern side of Cape Upstart. Completely protected from the wind and waves in SW winds, we shoved up on the beach for low tide, a swim, walk around, climb the boulders and some two on two soccer.

In the evening, we caught some fish which we cooked on the beach, with a side of nachos, damper, and skewers. All this while the clear skies had the stars and full moon watching on.

Perhaps you would call it living the dream!
