Event Details

Come to the Little Ship Club’s next member bay outing to Macleay Island, from 15-16 April 2023.

We are arranging cruise to Macleay Island for a weekend of socialising and exploring the island south in the Bay. Dinner is planned at the Club Macleay so that we can land and launch the dinghies at high tide.

Two potential anchorages are shown below depending upon weather. Closer to the date of the cruise, those that have nominated to go on the trip will be advised of the location. In either case, we will arrange for the bus to pick up and drop off from the Macleay Club.

Please RSVP your intentions to Peter here including whether you would like to have dinner at the Macleay Club.
