Provided the weather is suitable we will spend the ANZAC Day long weekend in southern Moreton Bay. Depending on the wind, we will probably overnight at Coochie Mudlo and/or Karragarra, but there are other options, so keep an eye on the Facebook page. There will be a race down from Manly on Saturday, at the usual staggered start times. Anyone not wanting to race can cruise down and join us at the agreed destination. We will then have two days to cruise, relax, and return to Manly.
If we overnight at Coochie, we will use 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 or south-easterly, the alternative destination will probably be Karragarra near the picnic area and swimming enclosure. It will be low tide in the late afternoon when we arrive, with a very high tide in the late evening and another high tide mid morning.
