Ladies and Gentlemen,

Yes, it is almost the long weekend and current long term forecast for Queens Birthday weekend is looking good with only very little moisture forecast for Sunday and this is getting less with each forecast update. Smile

Now is the time to focus on:

  • Booking your berth at Melbourne City Marina for 7 & 8 June (recommended)
  • Booking your car and trailer into Werribee South Caravan Park for safe storage (optional)
  • Letting tour co-ordinator (me) know your plans including:
    • where & when launching (Geelong, Werribee South or Warmies)
    • full / partial trip intentions
    • just meeting up at docklands
    • contact details i.e. mobile phone / MMSI numbers

Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you on the cruise.
