Another local trip experience
Planned local RMC getaway Friday 11th August - Sunday 13th August 2023
We are planning an RMC local trip, exploring Peel Island, Myora, and possibly the wrecks off Moreton Island.
Departure will be as a group from the top of Sovereign Islands with others joining us in the bay who reside further north.
9am Departure from Sovereign Islands, Gold Coast Broadwater.
Of course as always our experiences are determined a lot by the weather and this is also true for this local trip up into Moreton Bay. Peel Island, with its tranquil waters and historical sites, offers a serene and relaxing atmosphere and we may anchor here on the Friday night.
In addition to enjoying the anchorages, there is also the possibility of taking tenders over for afternoon drinks at the Little Ships Club. The club, located in a convenient location within reach from some of our anchorages, depending on where the boats are and what wind direction will be. The long forecast says SW for the Friday so we’ll have a look when things get closer.
Myora offers a secluded anchorage or if conditions are good we may think about heading straight to the Tangalooma Wrecks which would be a great way to spend a Friday afternoon.
