More Scooters?!?!
We love our little 'go go marina mobile' so much, we wanted you to be able to experience the breeze in your hair - we are bringing scooters to the masses, we have scooters for hire! Only $25 for two hours, or, take someone special for a day tour for only $39.

The best medicine:
Q) Did you hear about the crab that went to the seafood disco?
A) He pulled a muscle.

Got a joke for the newsletter?

Know your Knots Bowline
1. Lay the rope across your left hand with the free end hanging down. Form a small loop in the line in your hand.
2. Bring the free end up to and pass through the eye from the under side (the rabbit comes out of the hole).
3. Wrap the line around the standing line and back down through the loop (around the tree and back down the hole).
4. Tighten the knot by pulling on free end while holding standing line

Mackay Marina Newsletter

July 2014

Midway through cruising season we are enjoying seeing lots of new faces! We've had some windy weather but the last few weeks have been magnificent (even if a little cold for the North Queenslanders!). Lots of newcomers are taking advantage of our cruising season specials, and we are introducing even more!

Words with Ben
We are gearing up for the arrival of the World ARC Fleet next week, the vessels are due to arrive 23rd – 25th of July. The fleet is represented by 15 countries and approximately 120 crew. I am sure, like previous rallies they will have a fantastic time and get to enjoy the hospitality that Mackay Marina and Australia have to offer. Don’t forget about our “Yachties” BBQ’s every Tuesday fortnight, we had a great night last BBQ and were even treated to some live entertainment from 'The Boat People'.

Refuel and Recharge
Boating is a fantastic lifestyle, but sometimes you need to recharge the batteries. Take advantage of our refuel and recharge offer. When you stay 3 nights with us we will give you 3 cents off a litre, if you stay 5 nights with us you will receive a whole 5 cents off a litre! Recharge the batteries and fill the tank.

Marina Staff were treated to a day on the water off Mackay recently, as guests aboard the STS Young Endeavour. It was a fantastic experience for us all. We were even helping sail the tall ship. We got a full tour of the vessel, even if it made some of us a little sea sick, we decided we would never go out on a vessel without a full commercial kitchen and chef. We can dream...

Got a boating tip? We want to know about it! Submit your great boating idea's to us, and, if we print your tip in next months newsletter, you'll receive a bottle of wine!
Winner's announced in the August newsletter.

That wraps up July's newsletter, so, until next month happy and safe boating from all the Marina Staff.
