Cruising to the Gippsland Lakes and joining a Rally

Posted by Stephen Lake, Wednesday, 27th April 2016 @ 7:47pm

  • Rod Fuller writes about the Paynesville Rally and Shamrock's cruise from Williamstown to Paynesviolle and return:

    "We heard from our H28 representative at Paynesville, Gippsland Lakes, that the locals were planning a classic boat rally. Rod Fuller, an H28 Association Committee member, had a ‘brain wave’ and suggested to the Committee that we should get some boats together, cruise in company to the Gippsland Lakes and participate in this Rally. That’s how it all started. The planning began during 2015. To measure the interest an outline cruise plan was prepared and publicised on the H28 Association website. A presentation was also made to the HBYC Cruising group. Antares and Kashmir showed interest as well as some H28s from Geelong."
