Easter Cruise

Details to follow shortly regarding the SBSC Keelboat Easter Cruise being held from the 14th – 17th April however, rumour has it that the fleet will be heading up to Docklands /  Yarra’s Edge for the weekend!


For those looking for something a bit more adventurous Grant Chipperfield and Joker on Tourer are planning a trip down the Gippsland Lakes from Easter through to the Anzac weekend i.e. 13th to 25th April.

Weather permitting the loose plan would be to head down to Wilson’s Prom on the 13th then onto the Lakes for some wonderful cruising before returning to Martha Cove over the Anzac Weekend
