Cruise Report – St Helena Island

Cruise Captains :   P/C Denis and Anita Land.

Saturday 22nd June – 5 boats headed over to St Helena Island for a pleasant weekend on the water.  We met on North Light at 1600 hours for Sundowners as the cool south westerlies made it a little chilly for the planned meeting on the beach.

It was great to meet new cruisers and share stories of all the fun times we have on the cruises.   At the end of the Sundowers we were all a little envious of the lighting system on “Kamara’s” tender (Uber).

Sunday morning another 5 boats arrived in time for the guided tour of St Helena.   29 of us braved the chilly s/w winds and enjoyed the two hours of learning the history of the beautiful St Helena Island.   After lunch everyone left at their leisure to return to our home port.

Our thanks to all the cruisers who joined us, we greatly enjoyed your company. Thanks also to Mick Atkinson ‘Tin Thing’ for ferrying assistance and to the RQ promotions team. Last but not least, thanks to Roland from National Parks who gave us such and interesting address about the island.

The next gathering is the combined Sail & Power Cruise ‘Xmas in July’ at RQYS Canaipa on 21/22 July featuring kids (of all ages) at play and Kevin’s famous roast dinner – all welcome – see In The Wind for all the details.
