Despite the weather cancelling our planned aquatic activities and BBQ, the Christmas dinner at the clubhouse was fully booked out. A superb meal was created by Peter Kennett and his team and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thanks to Barry & Nicky for manning the bar and for Ann & Pete who decorated the Christmas trees and laid the tables.
Santa Claus made an appearance and Pippity Pop the balloon lady fashioned some amazing creations. Some photos taken by Pete can be viewed HERE
The annual OYC White Island Coastal Race was run on Saturday 5 December. There were four entrants, Dolce Vita, Casino, Maraquita & Huia. Maraquita took line honours and won the race as everyone else had to motor home after the wind died.
