Well, we didn’t make it last time, so we’ll try again to visit this great spot. There will be a race down from Manly on the Saturday, at the usual staggered start times. Anyone not wanting to race can cruise down and join us at Coochie-Mudlo Island. The return race will be on Sunday, with an earlier start time which will be decided to suit the wind.
We will overnight off the beach in front of the picnic shelter, which is on the south side of the island about 100 metres west of the barge ramp. Toilets, cold showers, and a café are a short walk away near the jetty. Bring a barbecue for dinner or buy fish and chips from the café.
Coochie provides excellent shelter from most wind directions, but if there is a brisk southerly, the alternative destination will be St Helena Island, so keep an eye on the Facebook page. St Helena has a picnic shelter and toilets near the jetty.
